Fri 22nd Dec 2023 - Terry Harrison to step down as Busaba MD
Terry Harrison to step down as Busaba MD: Terry Harrison is to step down as managing director of Busaba, the ten-strong Thai chain founded by Alan Yau, and will leave the business next March, Propel has learned. Harrison, a former director at Gondola Group, was appointed managing director of the Tnui Capital-backed Busaba in the summer of 2017. The brand went through its own restructure in 2020, where it looked to exit sites in Oxford Circus, Reading, Manchester and St Albans. It returned to the expansion trail in 2021, with openings in Cardiff and Oxford, and earlier this year launched a site in the Lakeside scheme in Essex. It is believed Harrison maintains an interest in the business and will continue to support the board at Busaba. Harrison told Propel: “It has been an incredible journey and a privilege to lead such a unique and established brand, with an authentic culture that I will always remain in awe of. There have been some scary times (a lot of people were reading the last rites on the business when I joined) but we came through them stronger and wiser. I've operated under three interesting and very different owners in my time at Busaba and worked alongside so many truly incredible people. I feel now it is the right time to go. The business is in a good place and it's important things don't end up being run on autopilot. I think both myself and the business will benefit from this decision. I'm going to take a well-earned breather before deciding what's next. I will truly miss the business and I am so proud that I got to play a small part in the history of Busaba.”
