Dominic South will become Greene King's new marketing director

Greene King Brewing Company has appointed a new marketing director.

The UK-based brewer said late last week that Dominic South will assume the position, although no details were given as to who South would replace and why. No-one was available for commennt at Greene King when contacted by just-drinks.

South joins the brewer, based in Suffolk, from Lindt & Sprungli, having worked on brands owned by United Biscuits – including McVitie's cakes and KP snacks - and PepsiCo UK, which owns Walkers crisps.

“Dominic is joining us at a very exciting time, said Greene King's managing director, Justin Adams. “(He) will play a critical role in taking our great brands, including Greene King IPA, Old Speckled Hen, Abbot Ale and Ruddles to the next level.”
