Steve Magnall to take up CEO position at St Peter's Brewery
As of 6th May 2015, the award winning St Peter’s Brewery has announced the appointment of Steve Magnall as its new CEO. Magnall will lead and develop business for the Suffolk based brewery when he takes over from Colin Cordy, who is retiring.
Steve Magnall is a highly respected force within the brewing business. Previously MD of Thwaites Beer Company, which was recently sold to Marstons for £25m, he has also worked as Deputy MD at Greene King and is a non-executive director of Cask Marque.
Steve Magnall says of his new appointment, “I am greatly looking forward to developing the St Peter’s brand even further through both its beer and retail formats. Without question, St Peter’s is a fantastic brand which produces a range of award winning beers -whether gluten free, organic, golden, ruby red or any of the others in the range. This is a true sleeping giant of a brand.”
St Peter’s chairman, John Murphy, says, “I and the rest of the team are delighted to welcome Steve to St Peter’s Brewery as our new Chief Executive Officer. His record is impressive and his knowledge of our industry is unmatched. He is brimming with ideas and, after more than twenty years of business, his vigour and enthusiasm is just what we need. We are very excited to see where he will take the business.”
Founded in 1996, St Peter’s Brewery is based in an attractive range of traditional former agricultural buildings at St. Peter South Elmham, near Bungay in Suffolk. Its own deep borehole provides exceptionally high quality water and locally malted barley is used together with UK hops to produce a range of classical English cask-conditioned ales and distinctive bottled beers.
