Marco Reick joined LEON Restaurants in 2016 as people director where he is responsible for the overall people strategy, overseeing recruitment, HR, training and development, wellbeing and culture
LEON prides itself in its unique culture of team wellbeing and has grown rapidly in recent years, both in the UK and internationally through a number of franchise partners. The company’s mission is to make it easier for everyone to live and eat well, and Reick is passionate about ensuring this is true for both customers and employees alike.
Prior to LEON, Reick spent three and a half years at the fledgling Bill’s Restaurants as part of the team of directors who took Bill’s from newcomer to nationwide restaurant brand during its expansion. No stranger to large-scale businesses, Reick also spent more than six years at The Restaurant Group (FTSE 250) as head of recruitment while the group was going through a period of significant growth, nearly doubling in size up to almost 500 sites. Reick is a frequent speaker and panellist at events and conferences, on topics such as employee wellbeing, team engagement and flexible working.
