Russell Breweries has appointed two new directors after a number of high profile departures. 

Peter Stafford, a QC, and Richard Shi, co-founder of Xinjiang Wusu Breweries Co, have been elected to the board of the Canadian brewer, the company announced late last week. It comes after Russell Breweries' president, COO & co-founder Andrew Harris left in June. No reason was given for Harris' departure and the brewery said last week he has also resigned as a director. 

The group's CFO, Gary Liu, and another company director Perpinder Patrola also left the company last month

Russell Breweries is based in British Columbia. In 2007, the company acquired Fort Garry Brewing Company, which operates out of Manitoba.
