Outgoing Greene King boss appointed chairman of Cafe Rouge owner
The outgoing boss of pub company Greene King has been tapped to chair the group behind restaurants Cafe Rouge and Bella Italia. Casual Dining Group (CDG) – which also operates Las Iguanas and La Tasca – has appointed Rooney Anand as chairman, starting this month. It comes after Mr Anand, who has been chief executive of Greene King for 14 years, announced he was stepping down from the group in November. Mr Anand said: “I’m very much looking forward to supporting Steve and the management team, helping them to build on the solid foundations they’ve established at CDG as they continue to grow and develop the business in the fast moving and competitive casual dining market.”.
