Lee Baron

Lee Baron, a leading specialist in property management, has appointed David Izett as non-executive director on its board. With over 35 years’ experience in the property sector, David was UK chief executive of Colliers International for nine years before joining Cushman & Wakefield in London. David also spent almost three years as chief operating officer of Cushman & Wakefield, Russia. He has broad experience in general management, equity raising, debt restructuring and mergers and acquisitions. David will be a key driver in focusing the company on its core competence of management and ensuring that the skill sets underpinning professional services are embedded in the organisation. He has a degree from the University of Warwick and is a fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Financial Conduct Authority

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) yesterday confirmed the appointment of Nick Stace as a non-executive director to its board. The appointment, made by the Treasury, is for an initial three-year term starting 1 April 2017. Nick’s extensive experience and knowledge gained through working at senior levels within organisations that deal directly with consumer related issues will be a significant asset to the FCA, being ideally suited to helping the authority to deliver its objectives. Nick is currently chief executive of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. He has held executive leadership positions in consumer organisations as deputy chief executive of Which? (UK) and chief executive of Choice (Australia), as well as a number of non-executive roles focusing on consumer experience, including as a director of a European consumer affairs organisation (BEUC) and as a director of Consumers’ International.

Pizza Hut International

Raphael Miolane, previously chief executive of Pizza Hut UK & Ireland, will take over as managing director of Pizza Hut Europe & UK, following the restructuring and consolidation of two separate teams, Pizza Hut Europe and Pizza Hut UK & Ireland. Neil Manhas, previously Pizza Hut UK & Ireland’s chief financial officer, has been appointed to the newly created role of general manager of Pizza Hut Delivery and Express UK. Raphael joined Yum! Brands - Pizza Hut’s parent company – in 2009 and has since enjoyed a successful career with both sister company KFC and Pizza Hut. Neil brings more than a decade of experience within the business to the role. Most recently he held the position of chief financial officer for Pizza Hut UK & Ireland and previously held various roles within the business’s financial team.
