Foursquare Group – the company that helps independent hospitality venues to start up, run, grow and protect themselves – has bolstered its team with a third and final Non Executive Director as it continues its ‘customer-first’ approach to new areas and markets.
Garry Lee, a former CEO of a multi-million pound tech business, has joined the board after Simon Taylor and Louise Kissack became Non Executive Directors earlier this year.
Foursquare Group offers a range of services for independent hospitality businesses, helping them implement policies, procedures, contracts, compliance, operations and manage people, as well as helping businesses train their staff to be better and safer in the working environment.
Over the last 18 months, the group’s commitment to the independent hospitality industry has been evident, with its UK first Pay What You Can Covid-safe scheme, and the ongoing invaluable support that Foursquare Group has provided throughout the pandemic.
As Foursquare Group expands and diversifies, it has bolstered its leadership team to ensure that the company delivers the very best products and services possible.
Garry’s main focus will be on the creation and development of two new online products for the group that will see Foursquare diversity and continue its expansion.
Garry has gained his experience and credentials after taking a tech business from £250,000 to £14m and launching the UK’s first triggered emails back in 2001, leading to market automation.
Liam Jones, Founder and CEO of Foursquare Group, said: “The world has changed over the last 18 months. We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, connecting with one another and receiving information. We’ve been busy figuring out how our business can adapt to take account of this, and I’m delighted with the plan we have.
“Over the course of the next 6-12 months, we will be launching two new online products and streamlining our existing ones to offer a more dynamic and bespoke experience for our Indie clients. Garry’s skills and experience in the technology industry will be a key part of the process for us.”
Garry added: “I love supporting small businesses and working with businesses that have a strong set of values to help people, so this opportunity is incredibly exciting for me and I’m looking forward to contributing to growing the business and helping some amazing local restaurants.”
