Rosa’s Thai Café appoints new managing director

Former Wahaca commercial and strategy director Gavin Adair has joined Rosa’s Thai Café as managing director.

Adair has previously spent three years as finance director at ASK Italian and a further two years as commercial and strategy director at Oaxaca Limited, the parent company of Wahaca, DF/Mexico and Burrito Mama.

Adair has been appointed as the restaurant group continues to expand following the opening of four sites in the last six months.

Director and co-founder Alex Moore has now become executive chairman, while fellow co-founder Saiphin Moore retains her role as F&B director. Further appointments are anticipated as the group continues to focus on openings over the coming months.

“After nine years we feel this is a good strategic move for our next phase of expansion,” says Alex Moore. “Bringing Gavin on board will allow me to focus on site selection and development, which will be essential to our continued growth. When Gavin joined Wahaca they were a similar size – now they’re at 25 plus sites. We are sure he will become a great asset to Rosa’s and are delighted to welcome him to the team.”
