YO SUSHI appointed former Mitchells and Butlers director Vanessa Hall as chief executive yesterday after revealing a 15 per cent rise in full-year earnings to £9.2m.

Hall joined the Japanese chain in September as chief operating officer and will replace Robin Rowland, who will take over as executive chairman after 14 years at the helm.

It comes as Yo Sushi posted sales of £71.m in the year to 30 November, with like-for-like sales up 4.6 per cent.
