Tom Byng is to step down as Chief Executive of Byron

Tom Byng is to step down as Chief Executive of Byron. He founded the better burger chain in 2007 and has grown it to a £80m turnover business with 69 sites across the country. Tom will remain a shareholder and will continue his involvement with Byron as an advisor to the board. Byng said: “It has been a huge honour to lead the Byron team through almost ten years of explosive growth during which we have served over 24 proper hamburgers to customers up and down the UK. We have doubled the size of the business since 2013 and with our 70th restaurant due to open in Southampton in the coming days, I feel the business now needs a different style of leadership to guide it through the next stage of its growth. The food scene in Britain is unrecognisable from a decade ago and London is the number one restaurant city in the world. It’s a thrilling time to be a restaurateur and I am greatly looking forward to pursuing various exciting ventures in the coming months”.
