Close Brothers Brewery Rentals announces new Managing Director

We are delighted to announce that Ross Mair, has been appointed as Managing Director of Close Brothers Brewery Rentals.

Having spent 18 years working for the Dutch brewer Heineken in various commercial roles throughout the UK and Europe, Ross joined the Brewery Rentals team two years ago as Commercial Director.

Ross takes over from MD David Beswick, who, after 12 years with the company, has stepped down after working tirelessly to develop the business and its product portfolio in the brewing and distilling sector.

During the last few years both David and Ross have overseen the development and implementation of its class-leading short-term keg rental model EkegPlus, which uses industry-leading technology to provide improved value to customers.

I’m excited to be taking the helm at Close Brothers Brewery Rentals, following David’s exceptional work growing the brand and establishing our market leading products.  I will continue to champion EkegPlus as a flexible and efficient rental tool for brewers of all sizes, as well as supporting the beverage industry across the UK and Ireland with specialist funding and leasing solutions, and in innovating and investing for the future of the industry.”
