BurgerFuel Group Appointment of Director

BurgerFuel Group Limited (BFG) has announced that it has appointed Tyrone Foley as a Director, effective from today.

Tyrone had recently resigned as the BFG Chief Operating Officer to pursue a new career opportunity and departed the company at the end of September 2021.

The Directors are delighted that Tyrone will be joining the Board and that he will still be able to contribute with his wide-ranging skills to the future direction of the business.

Tyrone first started his career at McDonald’s where he worked for 17 years under BurgerFuel’s current independent director Al Dunn (former Chairman and CEO of McDonald’s NZ). Tyrone had various leadership roles in operations, franchising and the project management of the McCafe rollout. His time also included the Field Service Manager role, a critical senior management position involved in the selection and management of franchisees.

In 2005 Tyrone spent a year with BurgerFuel as General Manager and then moved to BP Oil New Zealand for 7 years. At BP he was instrumental in managing many transformations to their retail business; namely BP Connect & Wild Bean Café in leadership roles such as the Business Support Manager and earlier as the Operations Excellence Manager.

Tyrone then re-joined BurgerFuel in September 2012 as the Chief Operating Officer and resigned in September 2021 after 9 years.

The Board has determined that, for the purposes of the NZX Listing Rules, Tyrone will not be an Independent Director of the Company.
