Revolution Bars Group, the 63-strong leading bar and causal dining group, has promoted Godfrey Russell to group property director.
Russell, who has been with the firm for 19 years, has been involved in all aspects of the company’s property strategy, acquisition and maintenance including site finding, design and build, maintenance and management.
In the last year, he has led the successful restart of the company’s property acquisition programme, rolling out the Group’s two distinct brands, Revolution and Revolution De Cuba.
Revolution Bars Group has opened six branches in the last 12 months adding over 30,000 square feet of trading space in locations from Milton Keynes to Leeds.
A new Revolution De Cuba was opened in Harrogate last week and three other units are under construction in Reading, Glasgow and Aberdeen. The company expects to open another five bar-restaurants in the current financial year.
Mark McQuater CEO of Revolution Bars Group, said: “Growing and refreshing our businesses is at the heart of Revolution’s success – in the last year we have invested over £14m in opening new sites and our existing estate giving us one of the best supported businesses in the sector.”
