Scottish Courage Brands has promoted Paul Stanger to trade marketing and planning director.
At the same time, Brian Sharp, marketing director at Scottish Courage Brands for the past four years, has been promoted to MD Scottish Brewers. He is the latest high profile off-trade name to shift to the on-trade, following the move by Coors' John Holberry to become MD for its on-trade sales division in July.
As part of his new responsibilities Stanger will be responsible for setting off-trade strategy. He will also be overseeing the implementation of customer promotional plans in his new role.
Stanger has been with the brewer's off-trade division for four years and previously held a senior commercial planning role in the wholesale and convenience sectors.
Keith Hogg, MD of Scottish Courage Brands, said: "Paul has played a key role in our success over the years and I am delighted with his appointment."
