Restaurant Group Chair Debbie Hewitt to step down
Wagamama owner Restaurant Group said on Tuesday that Chair Debbie Hewitt will step down with effect from 31 December to take on the same role at the English Football Association.
The company has kicked off a formal process to recruit a successor, led by senior independent director Graham Clemett, and an announcement will be made in due course.
Chief executive officer Andy Hornby said: "On behalf of the board and everyone at TRG, I would like to thank Debbie for the significant contribution that she has made to the business. She is a proactive chairman who has built and led a high-quality board and proactively engaged with all stakeholders throughout her tenure."
Hewitt is due to take up her new role at the FA in January 2022. She will be their first ever female Chair.
