Boxpark appoints new COO

Boxpark recently announced the promotion of Ben McLaughlin to the position of chief operating officer (COO) with immediate effect. The promotion comes as the business concentrates on its growth and the development of a new sibling concept, Boxhall.

Previously at Stonegate Pub Company, McLaughlin joined Boxpark as operations manager in January 2018 and, over the course of three years, has demonstrated his ability to lead the company’s strategy and oversee all commercial and operational aspects of the business. 

Roger Wade, CEO and founder of Boxpark, said: “As Covid-19 continues to impact the hospitality industry, we can only hope to remain positive and use this time to focus on our future plans. I am delighted to confirm Ben McLaughlin’s new position as COO – he is an extremely valued member of the team and has brought fantastic insights into the business since joining three years ago. I have no doubt he will continue to deliver great results at Boxpark as we evolve.”
