Paul and Jim have built a brilliant and successful business over the last 17 years and I cannot wait to start to bring my experience to the team. The last 12 months has been difficult for whole of the hospitality industry. I am hugely excited to be joining the team at this important time not only for the Purity Brewing business but the sector as a whole, as we come out of lockdown in the UK.”
