Tim Hortons hires new UK chief finance and commercial officer

Tim Hortons, the Canadian café and bake shop, has appointed Kevin Hydes as its new UK chief finance and commercial officer. Having joined the business at the start of July, he will oversee business strategy, brand execution and development in UK.

Tim Hortons opened its first British and European restaurant on Argyle Street in Glasgow at the start of June and is planning a UK expansion.

The brand said Hydes will be responsible for delivering a concept that is unique to the UK market and places an equal emphasis on freshly-prepared food and coffee.

Prior to joining the business, Hydes spent 11 years at Costa Coffee where he oversaw the marketing function in the UK. In his most recent role as international and brand development director, he was responsible for managing and developing brand execution across both equity international markets in Poland, Singapore and France and for franchise operations across 26 markets in Europe, the Middle East and South-East Asia.

Gopi Dhaliwal, chief operating officer at Tim Hortons UK and Ireland, said: “We are delighted to have attracted someone of Kevin’s calibre to Tim Hortons. Kevin brings an enormous wealth of experience from his time at Costa Coffee, and his expertise of quickly scaling food and drink retail brands will be vital to our long-term ambitions in Great Britain.”
