Andrea Pozzi has been appointed Managing Director of Tennent Caledonian Breweries following the news that Alastair Campbell is leaving the business. Campbell, who took over as MD from Brian Calder last summer, leaves C&C next week.
Pozzi who joined C&C in 2010 has had various roles within the group the most recent being Managing Director International EMEA Region and Group Manufacturing Director. He now takes on the role of Managing Director across GB covering both the Tennent’s and C&C Brands Business Units. The decision to combine the Managing Director roles for Tennent’s and C&C Brands follows on from the integration of the respective Finance and Marketing functions over the last year.
The news comes following a raft of new appointments including that of Ewan Robertson to the role of Finance Director following Kenny Barclay’s move to Manorview, while Alan Hay took over as On Trade Sales Director from Matt Munro at the tail end of last year. The management team in Scotland also includes Paul Condron who is Marketing Director and John Gilligan who is Business Development Director.
Andrea commented, “I’m proud to take on the role of Managing Director at Tennent’s – a true Scottish icon since 1556. We’ve put in place a strong management team and a passionate and committed workforce across the Tennent’s business and I look forward to working with everyone to deliver our vision of being the foremost brewer and wholesaler serving the licensed trade in Scotland.”
Campbell was the first non-drinks related MD appointment at the company in more than 40 years and only the fourth person to hold the role since Angus Meldrum retired in October 2001.
