New CEO for Wadworth & Co

Chris Welham has been announced as the new chief executive officer at Wadworth & Co and joins from his recent role as managing director of Spirit Leased at Spirit Pub Company.

"This is a really exciting opportunity for me," said Welham. "And I am greatly looking forward to starting the new role in November.

"It's also an exciting time for Wadworth and the brewing industry as a whole. Recent reports reveal a significant swing to real ale among younger drinkers. I am delighted to be joining a company with such a distinguished history and such strong potential for growth for both its beer brands and pub business."

Welham's appointment follows last year's decision by Charles Bartholomew, a descendant of one of the founders of the company, to step down from his dual role of managing director and executive chairman. He remains in a role as non-executive chairman.
