Perring previously served as CFO of Leon Restaurants from 2015 to early 2021, primarily responsible for delivering the financing structures.
Prior to that he served as financial director at Wagamama from 2006 to 2014, during which time the company grew internationally as well as in the UK.
He joins the restaurant business as the group continues its ambitious global expansion, with five new restaurants launching all within the last few weeks. These openings will be quickly followed by another 10 sites in the UK alone by the summer, with dozens more sites currently under review.
Perring said: “I’m extremely excited to be joining the Gordon Ramsay Restaurants team as the sector emerges from lockdown.
“Our planned new restaurant openings will enable the business to accelerate its growth, boosting employment in the sector and advancing existing and new landlord relationships.”
Gordon Ramsay added: “Despite all of the pandemic related challenges, we have to be optimistic and forward thinking and invest back into our amazing industry.
“We have an incredibly ambitious global growth strategy, and I’m delighted to have Antony on the team to help drive our future expansion plans.”
