Dishoom operations chief Brian Trollip has been promoted to the role of managing director.
Mr Trollip has been with Dishoom for 10 years, and has been an integral part of the company’s senior management team, led by co-Founders Shamil and Kavi Thakrar.
He steps into his new role following many years as the company’s ‘chief operations wallah’ and will continue to support the founders and co-ordinate the work of the company’s senior team.
Shamil Thakra said: “Brian has been part of the Dishoom family since 2011 and has overseen operations as we’ve grown over the past 10 years.
“This past year has been especially challenging for all of us in the industry. Kavi and I are humbled to have had the support of such a strong and resilient team around us, and we look forward to seeing Brian carry even more weight on his very broad shoulders as we move through 2021.”
The move comes as the chain continues to expand its delivery kitchen offer in the UK.
During the first lockdown, with its restaurants closed, the Dishoom team sought out new ways to bring people together over food and drink.
Initially offering delivery from a number of its café kitchens, Dishoom moved members of its team into brand new delivery kitchens once the restaurants reopened in July.
As well as allowing the chain to reach more guests nationwide, it has also helped to provide long-term security for employees.
