David Bateman joins Wimbledon Brewery from UK stationery firm Paperchase

David Bateman takes on the new role at Wimbledon Brewery after 17 years with UK stationery firm Paperchase. Bateman was Paperchase's CFO & COO before leaving the company last year, and helped in its 2004 sale to Borders Group as well as a management buyout in 2010.

Wimbledon said it hoped Bateman's experience of growing Paperchase from a small UK retailer to an international business will aid the brewery. "I believe that his skills and experience can add huge value to the Wimbledon Group going forward," said Wimbledon founder Mark Gordon.

Bateman is making "a personal financial investment" in Wimbledon Brewery, which will "assist in supporting its growth and helping to achieve its ambitions", the group said, adding that the site is now ready to begin exports.

Wimbledon Group, which built its brewery in 2015, also owns Firebird Bars and Restaurants and Wimbledon Distillery. The brewery's brands include the 3.7%-abv Common Pale Ale and the 5.8%-abv Quartermaine IPA.
