Third non-exec joins board at Foursquare
Based in Liverpool, Foursquare Group offer a range of consultancy services for independent hospitality businesses and he welcomed tech entrepreneur Garry Lee to its board
Liverpool hospitality consultancy Foursquare Group has added a third non-executive director to its board.
Garry Lee, a former chief executive of a multi-million pound technology business, has joined the board after Simon Taylor and Louise Kissack became non-executive directors earlier this year.
Foursquare 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.
During the COVID-19 pandemic the firm offered what it claimed was the UK’s first pay-what-you-can COVID-safe scheme to help bars and restaurants badly hit by the crisis get back on their feet.
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. The first product will be a platform that provides unlimited access to the essential documents.
The second platform will be an new e-learning system. Independents will have access to a wide range of courses which will enable them to launch, run and grow their business.
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.
He said: “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.”
