Selfridges has found a replacement for head of food and restaurants Ewan Venters, who is leaving this month to become CEO of Fortnum & Mason.

Mitchells & Butlers head of operations Brian Hannon will take on the role on 29 October. He has 19 years of experience at Mitchells & Butlers, starting as a retail business manager and working his way up to director of operations - a position he has held since 2009.

Meanwhile, Mark Raban has been promoted to finance director at Selfridges and sister company Brown Thomas. He has been interim group director of finance since joining Selfridges from Global Strategies Group in 2010.
