UK: Fuller, Smith & Turner appoints chief executive
Fuller's will have a new chief executive from July
Fuller, Smith & Turner has announced that its group MD has been promoted to fill the currently vacant post of chief executive.
Simon Emeny, who has worked for the London-based brewer and pub company for 16 years, will take the role from July, the company said today (4 April). Executive chairman Michael Turner will step down to become the group's non-executive chairman.
A Fuller's spokesperson told just-drinks: "When Michael goes non-executive, he will work part-time and Simon will become group chief executive and take over additional duties from Michael like running the executive board."
The London Pride brewer said the move is the “next stage in the evolution of the company's succession plan”.
Turner said: “Simon’s record of success has been outstanding. He has delivered a first class performance during his time with Fuller’s and I know he is the right person to lead the company on to the next step in its long-term development as a leader in its field.”
Last year, the company spent GBP22.9m (US$36.2m) on acquiring 15 UK pubs from Enterprise Inns.
