Rooney Anand has been named managing director of Greene King's brands and brewing division, owner of the Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen brands. Anand leaves Sara Lee Bakery UK, which he joined as marketing director, later becoming managing director. He said: "Greene King is a dynamic company with excellent brands and some very talented people. It's been performing well, even in tough market conditions, and its commitment to cask and traditional beer shines through. "Clearly, there is still potential to be exploited and I look forward to being part of a team which is able to demonstrate that real cask beers can perform well if they are carefully nurtured by the brewers and supply chain, and vigorously promoted by the marketeers." He promised to bring a fresh perspective to ensure development and continued growth for the company in future. {{PEOPLE MOVES }}
