West Coast Sales Manager
West of Scotland
Neil Young (his parents were big fans), 39, joined WEST Brewery in 2019 and it turns out it’s a very musical company – Matt Munro is the MD!
He’s worked for Global Brands and Budweiser but most recently he spent six years with a manufacturing company before returning to the trade.
“I had to come back. The on-trade and pubs have always held a very special place in my heart. My aunt owns a pub and I have loved the smell of pubs ever since I was wee, laid in front of the fire in her pub reading comics with my sister.
“I said to myself that I would only ever go back to work for a product that I love because it’s an industry that I love. You need to speak passionately to sell the product and I am a passionate St Mungo drinker.”
Since the pandemic, he’s taken on direct deliveries one day a week.
“It’s a great opportunity to see key customers every week and it’s good to touch base on a more regular basis.
“We just launched our new autumn and winter products and it’s so refreshing to be able to talk about it with customers with no mention of vaccines or restrictions or lockdowns.”
Away from the job he loves playing golf and watching football and his wife has converted him to a bit of a foodie.
