Graduating from Cardiff University in 1999, Gareth found his passion for the beer industry early in his career working in various sales and marketing roles at Molson Coors. Gareth spent a number of years indulging his adventurous spirit at Red Bull, working in commercial roles across on and off premise channels and latterly in the Australian market. Gareth returned to the UK to join the craft beer revolutionaries, BrewDog. There he held the position of Head of Sales in the UK before being promoted to Sales Director and most recently to Managing Director for the UK and International business. During three and a half incredibly successful years with the Scottish craft brewer, Gareth led the business to consecutive years as the UK’s fastest growing food and drinks company.
When Gareth recently moved on from BrewDog he was thrilled to be offered the role of Managing Director of the Beer and Cider division at Chapel Down, the Curious Brewery. The modern UK beer and cider marketplace is thriving and the Curious Brewery have developed a unique and distinctive proposition to challenge in this competitive space. The reputation and success of Curious continues to grow and there is a truly huge opportunity to take the business and brand onto the world stage.
Gareth is excited about the future of Chapel Down and the Curious Brewery with exciting plans sure to surprise and delight consumers every step of the way!
