Marston’s, the brewer and pub operator, has strengthened its board with the appointment of two non-executive directors with a background at supermarket group Tesco.

Carolyn Bradley was group brand director at Tesco from 2012 to 2013. She joined the group in 1986 and held a number of other senior positions including chief operations officer for Tesco.com, commercial director for Tesco Stores and Tesco UK marketing director.

She led the teams responsible for major marketing initiatives including the Every Little Helps campaign and the launch of the Tesco Clubcard. She was a trustee of the DrinkAware Trust until 2013.

Catherine Glickman was group HR director at Tesco from 2009 to 2012, having joined the company in 1991 and led retail management development and customer service training during a period of significant expansion in the UK and overseas. She previously worked for Somerfield and Boots.

Roger Devlin, chairman of Marston’s, said: “I am delighted to welcome both Carolyn and Catherine to Marston’s. They will bring valuable marketing and HR experiences from different businesses and both have had successful careers in a leading retail consumer facing business. These skills will be of great benefit to Marston’s as we seek to expand our own business in branded pub-restaurants and brewing.”

Some synergy?

Posted by david,

In February, Enterprise Inns announced that Adam Fowle, the then CEO at Tesco Family Dining, had been appointed a non-executive director.

Now 2 further executives from Tesco become non-executive directors of Marstons.

Other than both these pub-owning companies being heavily involved in flogging off pubs to become supermarkets, is there any other synergy in play?
