Scott Macdonald has left his role as managing director at Sourced Market after two-and-a-half years at the deli and retail brand.
He has joined the seven-strong Fego restaurant group ahead of its next phase of growth.
Macdonald was previously managing director at Polpo, during which time he oversaw a consolidation of its estate, including the closure of restaurants in Bristol, Exeter and its Ape & Bird site in London's Cambridge Circus.
Prior to Polpo he was managing director at Bill's, where he was part of the team that grew the business from four to 72 sites.
In a LinkedIn post, Macdonald said: "After just over two-and-a-half awesome years I have decided to move on from Sourced Market. I have lead the business and the wonderful teams through a few tricky spots, not to mention the last 19 months through the rather unhelpful pandemic, I leave on a super high with a happier and a more investable business, with the new Cobham site almost there, I'm sure the business will continue to great things.
"Now onto Fego! I'm looking forward to helping this awesome seven site business, initially focusing on its strategic plans for the remainder of the year and early into next. We're about to launch a new innovation hub, where we'll be creating a Harry Potter scale of magic and also support on their next phase of growth... here we go!"
Fego currently has sites in Ascot, Banstead, Beaconsfield, Cobham, Gerrards Cross, Marlow and Sunningdale.
