Camile Thai Kitchen Announces New Appointments To Its Board

Camile Thai Kitchen has announced the appointment of Brian Caulfield and Andy McCue to the Camile board of directors, the latter of whom will take on the position of non-executive chairman.

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

McCue served as CEO of Paddy Power before joining The Restaurant Group plc as CEO.

“Really Pleased”

Camile founder and CEO Brody Sweeney stated, “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.”

“Very Excited”

Caulfield commented, “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.”

Meanwhile, 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.”

“A Milestone Year”

Sweeney added, “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.”

Expansion Plans

Camile also announced that it has plans to open up further locations in Ireland and abroad, which will be revealed in the next few weeks.
