Mark Wylie is the new Partner/ Executive chef for The Hip Group in Auckland's Eastern suburbs.

In his new role he will be working primarily with Cafe on Kohi, and The Store on Kohi. As well he will oversee another opening the group has planned for St Heliers. Another The Hip Group project, The Pavilions, currently under construction at Britomart, is due for completion in December.

Mark said that he is looking forward to working directly with food again. "In a cafe, there's one style and in my role with The Hip Group, I will be solely focused on the food. You can be close to the product and you can influence everything."

Mark was previously Director of Kitchens at SkyCity and Executive Chef at Soul.
