David is President and COO at BrewDog, an international craft beer business, founded in Scotland, with four world class craft breweries around the globe. 

BrewDog was recently ranked as the 18th most valuable beer brand on the planet, in the latest Brand Finance beer report. It was the only UK brand, only Craft Beer brand, and only independently owned brand on that list.

With a billion pound plus valuation and an army of over 180,000 “Equity Punk” investors, BrewDog exports to over 60 markets and has over 100 bars around the world, both managed and franchised.

David drives an incredible leadership team to deliver the day to day operations and strategic direction of this remarkable global business, as it continues its rapid growth pattern.

He has also led the charge as BrewDog has built its UK and international bars business (adding over 80 locations in the last five years….)

David now leads the business into its second decade, with turnover of +£250m, 2000 people in the team, and with a simple mission to make other people as passionate about great beer as we are.

David has 12 years of board level experience across hospitality, leisure, FMCG, working with entrepreneurial founders in fast growth environments, with a specialist focus in building and scaling multi-site retail and leisure concepts.
