New Chairman For BBPA

New Chairman For BBPA

09:13 2012

Jonathan Neame, chief executive of Kent-based family brewer Shepherd Neame, is to be the new chairman of the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA). The news follows the departure of Molson Coors chief executive Mark Hunter, who is taking up a role as head of a new, Europe-based business unit following Molson Coors’ acquisition of StarBev. A handover will take place before the end of June.

Jonathan Neame has been a leading figure in the association for many years. Currently a BBPA vice chairman and executive board member, he moves from his current role as chairman of the BBPA’s future Beer Group, where he has given strong strategic leadership to the BBPA’s high profile campaigning against excessive beer tax rises, and it’s championing of beer as a category.

Jonathan Neame.

Jonathan Neame joined Shepherd Neame in 1991. He was company secretary until 1999 when he was appointed managing director. He became chief executive in 2003. He is a barrister and was a managing consultant with COBA Group from 1987 to 1991. He is a non-executive director of the St Austell Brewery Company.

Stefan Orlowski (managing director of Heineken UK) is to become BBPA vice chairman and Paul Wells (chief executive of Charles Wells) a BBPA director. The BBPA is the UK’s leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96% of the beer brewed in the UK and around half of Britain’s 51,000 pubs.
