Camile Thai Kitchen has made moves to strengthen its executive board and has announced the appointment of Brian Caulfield and Andy McCue to the Camile board of directors.

Andy McCue will take on the position of Non-Executive Chairman as part of the move. The company also plans to open up further locations in the UK, Ireland and abroad to be announced in the next few weeks.

Brian Caulfield is a serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and angel investor.

Andy McCue served as CEO of Paddy Power, where he led the business, embedding a new growth strategy which delivered record revenues and profits. McCue was the last Irish bookmaker’s chief executive in 2015, when he led the company through its merger with betting exchange Betfair. After Paddy Power he joined The Restaurant Group plc as CEO. McCue was responsible for purchasing the Wagamama business for the Restaurant group, as well as his experience with tech focussed Paddy Power.

Brody Sweeney, Founder and CEO of Camile, expressed his delight at both Brian and Andy joining the board. “We are really pleased to have attracted directors of the calibre of Brian and Andy to our board. It shows our serious ambitions for Camile and it’s future growth. I’m excited to officially welcome them both to our Camile Family.”

Speaking on his appointment, Brian Caulfield said: “I am very excited at the opportunity to become a non-executive Director of the Camile board. As a Camile fan, it is amazing to see such a strong, and globally impactful company coming out of Dublin.

Andy McCue said: “Camile provides a very exciting tech focussed hospitality business model and I look forward to being given the opportunity to help Camile grow further.

“2020 has been a milestone year for Camile. With many restaurants suffering the consequences of pandemic restrictions, we were very fortunate to see a 59% increase in systems sales in the UK and a 40% increase in Ireland. We owe this to our largely suburban, delivery focussed business model. This growth has enabled us to proceed ahead of time with our drone and robotics-focused tech strategy,” said Sweeney.
