COLLINS Foods Limited (ASX:CKF) has secured the former financial director of Starbucks UK to bolster the group's senior management team.
Nigel Williams has been appointed chief financial officer of the KFC franchisee effective immediately.
The finance executive hails from a background of multinational corporations, and has developed a strong understanding of multi-site operations as a result.
Prior to his position at Starbucks UK, he held a number of senior roles at natural food retailer Pret A Manger in the UK.
Collins Foods managing director and CEO Graham Maxwell says Williams is a well credentialed CFO and sure to be a coup for the company.
"I am delighted that Nigel has accepted the role of group CFO," Maxwell says.
"With over 10 years' experience in senior finance roles in the United Kingdom, including the past five years as financial director of Starbucks UK, he will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the business."
