We’re delighted to announce the recruitment of James Owens as our Sales Manager.
James is a Shropshire lad and joins us in his home county after a successful career spent in national consumer magazine publishing, computer software and digital sound equipment sales in the UK and northern Europe.
He is one of three key appointments at the brewery. Former assistant brewer Andrew Pinnock becomes Head Brewer to replace the just-retired Paul Benson and the assistant’s post is filled by Sam Lane, who originally joined Wood’s on a six-month work experience contract.
Wood’s MD Edward Wood said: “James has the sales experience and the interest in our beers to expand our customer base of licensed outlets across the Midlands, North West and Wales and to develop new business with wholesalers, agencies and major retailers.”
“We’re delighted to have recruited him, and on the brewing side, I’m confident that Andrew and Sam will maintain the quality and consistency that is essential to the beers we produce.”
