Gary McMullen was confirmed as joining Big Rock's board late yesterday. He joins Calgary-headquartered Big Rock just over a fortnight after the company posted a 10% lift in half-year sales.

Having founded Muskoka in 1996, McMullen left the company earlier this year "to pursue new endeavours", according to the brewer's website. He was also a founding member of the Canadian Association of Small Brewers and the Ontario Craft Brewers Association.

"The board couldn't be more pleased to have such a passionate and driven entrepreneur, founder and brewer join us," said Big Rock chair, John Hartley. "McMullen has built a reputation as a leader who is passionate about people and beer and he will be a valued voice at Big Rock."

Last month, Big Rock announced a new CEO & president. Wayne Arsenault, a former CEO at Canadian pet food maker Corey Nutrition Co and VP with Moosehead Breweries, will take on the role from 7 September. Arsenault has also held management roles at Molson Coors and The Coca-Cola Co.
