Yo! Sushi's senior officials to step down

Two high-ranking employees will leave office at the end of July.

Japanese restaurant group YO! Sushi announced that new business development director Alison Vickers and property director Kieran Sherlock will be leaving the business.

Vickers, who has held roles including head of International, Marketing, Business Development and Intellectual Property over the last 17 years, will continue to support the business as a consultant.

Sherlock, who has helped acquire and develop around 70 new restaurants in both the UK & US during his 12 years at YO!, is leaving the business to pursue other interests in property.

YO! CEO Robin Rowland said, “Since 2003, YO! has grown into a leading UK casual dining and lifestyle brand. Alison and Kieran have been instrumental in helping to navigate this journey. Their experience and creativity has been indispensable in getting the company to our goal of 100 restaurants by year end.

“On a personal note, I’ve loved working with both of them. We’re sad to see them go, but both have lots to offer the wider hospitality and business world and are keen to explore new ways to express their phenomenal talents and skills. We wish them well."
