Fuller, Smith & Turner loses beer company MD

The head of Fuller, Smith & Turner's beer business, John Roberts, is to leave the UK-based group.

Roberts will depart on 7 March in order to "pursue new opportunities", Fuller's said yesterday (1 March). He has been MD of the UK company's beer business since 2006 and has been on the board of directors since 1996.

"On behalf of the board, I would like to thank John for the contribution that he has made to Fuller's progress and particularly to the marketing of our beer brands during the past 15 years," said the London Pride brewer's executive chairman, Michael Turner. "We understand his personal wish to pursue new opportunities at this time and wish him well in his future career."

Fuller's is in the process of seeking a replacement for Roberts.
