Browns Restaurant Group Appoints New President

James MacFarlane

TORONTO — Scott Morison, owner, founder and creative driving force of Browns Restaurant Group (BRG) has announced James MacFarlane as the company’s new president.

Since joining BRG in 2017, MacFarlane demonstrated his ability to obtain superior results on a highly competitive playing field. He has accomplished this by establishing trust with the franchisee community, the corporate team and vendor partners. MacFarlane was hand-picked for the successor role as president due to his energetic and results-oriented management style. His hands-on approach, operational expertise and high regard for the company’s core values gave rise, under the mentorship of Scott Ward, to his promotion from the initial role of director of New Concept Development to COO in just a few years.

Ward, as a natural progression of his 15 years of steering the company through its evolution, has transitioned into the newly created role of senior business advisor, providing guidance and support to BRG’s leadership group, as well as strategic counsel directly to Morison.

This timing selected given that 2024 is the company’s 20th year in business.
