Roadchef appoints new chief executive

Roadchef has appointed Mark Fox as chief executive of the business. He succeeds Simon Turl, who is moving into a new role as chairman of Roadchef.

Fox joins the business with experience in senior roles in the UK and international hospitality industries, working at big names including KFC, Pizza Hut UK and Ireland, Starbucks and, most recently, chief executive of casual dining brand Bill’s.

Fox said: “I’ve been thoroughly impressed by how much the Roadchef brand has evolved over the last 10 years, and I really look forward to working with colleagues and our trading partners to continue to develop the organisation in the coming years.”

Turl added: “It has been my privilege to lead the Roadchef business over the last 11 years and I am looking forward to a new challenge in my role as chairman. I am thrilled that we have been able to attract someone of Mark’s calibre to lead this fantastic team and I wish him every success for the future.”
