Greene King, owners of Belhaven (pictured is Belhaven Pub The Scottish Engineer), has made changes to its executive board as it moves from a centralised commercial and operations structure for its managed pub division to three divisional teams, each led by a managing director.
Andy Wilson has been appointed managing director of the Destination Food Brands division, while Karen Bosher has been appointed managing director of Premium, Urban and Venture Brands. Wilson and Bosher will both join the executive board. Wilson, who has been with Greene King for seven years, has been interim director of the Destination division while Bosher has been running the Local division since the departure of chief operating officer Richard Lewis about nine months ago.
Dan Robinson, currently central operations director, will move to run the Local division on an interim basis while the company looks externally for a permanent replacement. Robinson will then move to a new role in the business.
Greene King will also recruit a group chief marketing officer to the board with responsibility to develop brands and customer experience across the group. As a result of the move to the divisional model chief commercial officer Phil Thomas, whose current responsibilities include marketing, trading and food development, will leave the business at the end of April after three years.
