Scot Mark Hunter, has been appointed Chairman of the British Beer & Pub Association. Hunter who is Molson Coors Chief Executive replaces Ralph Findlay as BBPA Chairman. He is stepping down after the completion of his two year term of office.
Mark is not new to the BBPA. He has chaired the BBPA’s Finance Committee since 2010, and has been a member of the BBPA’s Board since 2009.

Mark joined Bass Brewers in the 1980s, became Marketing Director in 1997 before transferring to Molson in Canada in 2005 as Chief Commercial Officer following the formation of Molson Coors. Mark returned to the UK as chief executive for Molson Coors UK and Ireland and is a member of the Molson Coors global executive team.
Mark comments, “Growth is our economic priority. Over the next two years, we have to set in train two things. We have to play, fully, our leading role in building a culture of moderation in the UK, founded on respect for alcohol and we have to champion our category through a celebration of Beer and Pubs – reconnecting British drinkers with beer.

“We want the government to share a growth agenda which creates jobs and stimulates the responsible consumption of lower strength alcohol such as beer with policies that support community pubs and enable hard-pressed consumers to still afford one of life’s simple pleasures, a pint shared with friends and family.”
