Giggling Squid has appointed Mark Priest as finance director.
Priest joins the Thai restaurant after five years at Brasserie Bar Co., where he assisted in the rebranding of Brasserie Blanc and the roll out of its pub company, The White Brasserie Co.
Prior to that, he worked at BDO LLP within the hospitality sector.
Priest joins the company in the summer.
‘”I’m very much looking forward to joining the team at Giggling Squid and assisting them with the next phase of growth,” says Priest.
“Pranee and I are delighted that Mark is joining us this summer,” comments Giggling Squid co-owner Andy Laurillard. “We feel his experience and skills set is just what we need to help drive Giggling Squid’s continued rapid expansion.”
Giggling Squid now trades from 21 sites following the most recent launch in Brentwood. Further locations in the pipeline include Windsor, Bath, Cheltenham and Wimbledon.
