After nine years at Wadworth, Paul Sullivan has taken the decision to leave the business to pursue other opportunities. He is keen to progress his career and feels that this ambition would be best served by moving to another business at this time.
Charles Bartholomew, chairman and Chris Welham, CEO would like to thank Paul for his hard work and contribution to Wadworth over many years.
Wadworth has therefore confirmed a Board restructure with immediate effect.
Jonathan Thomas will take the new role of sales director and sit on the Wadworth Board looking after the business transformation of our beer brands and building our relationships with our Trade customers. Jonathan has over 30 years’ experience in the drinks industry including 20 years with Bass and Molson Coors in a variety of roles including national account director Regional Brewers UK, customer services director and free trade director. Jonathan also owns his own free house, The Ruperra Arms, Bassaleg, Newport which won Welsh Pub and Restaurant of the Year 2015.
Rupert Bagnall has also been appointed to the Wadworth Board as operations director. Rupert has played a pivotal role in leading the Wadworth managed house estate to be the established and renowned quality pubs they are today.
