Byron Hamburgers appoints Simon Cope as Chief Executive Officer

Acting executive chairman Dalton Philips has stepped back to non-executive Chairman.

Cope joined Byron as Managing Director in July 2017 from Wagamama, another Hutton Collins Partners LLP portfolio company.

He played a significant role in the implementation of Wagamama’s successful five-year strategy, redefining the direction of the UK and US businesses. Simon has held previous senior management roles at Mitchells & Butlers, Suburban Restaurants and London & High Street.

Dalton Philips said, “Simon had an immediate impact on our business when he joined as MD in July. He understands the dynamics of this hugely competitive and exciting market place. He is passionate about food, gets our customers, is a fantastic team leader and has a serious track record of delivery. There isn’t much he hasn’t seen, and it is clear to me that he is going to be a terrific CEO for Byron.”

“We have strengthened Byron’s senior management significantly over the past six months and the new team is already making great strides in reinvigorating Byron’s pioneering spirit and distinctive character. I look forward to further progress under Simon’s leadership,” he added.
