Having recently celebrated 20 years since the brewery returned to independent family control, following a buyback from Scottish and Newcastle in 2003, Scott’s appointment forms part of a wider strategic change in the brewery’s structure to enable growth plans.

“The Theakston name is synonymous with a rich heritage, expert craftsmanship and, of course, great beers,” said Scott. “I am extremely proud to be joining such a celebrated brewery and being part of the exciting future it has planned.”

Simon Theakston, joint managing director at Theakston’s, added: “We are delighted to welcome Scott to the team at this significant time for the brewery. Alongside his finance responsibilities, his experience across supply chain, procurement, and the technical services industry will further bolster the expertise within the business, and we look forward to toasting his appointment with a pint in the Black Bull in Paradise.

“Driven by unquenchable passion for creating distinctive beers of the highest quality, the structure we’re putting in place for the business will best position us for further growth and help prepare for our next 200 years of business.”
