The chief executive of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Tim Page has stepped down from his role as a director of Drinkers' Voice but confirmed he's staying in place at CAMRA.

Page was involved in setting up Drinkers' Voice, designed to represent consumers of alcoholic drinks in debates about the link between alcohol and health – which it’s believed had become dominated by the anti-alcohol lobby.

Page confirmed his resignation from the company which was established on 10 September 2017.

Responding to rumours suggesting he was also stepping down from his post at CAMRA, Page told The Morning Advertiser​: “No, I’m not leaving CAMRA.”

CAMRA focus 

Commenting on his resignation from Drinkers' Voice, he said: “My involvement has ceased, actually. Having established the organisation and recruited a board of directors, spokespeople and an employee, I’ve stepped down as a director because I’m the chief executive of CAMRA and it’s a completely separate organisation.”

Drinkers' Voice is led by a board of directors that includes Byron Davies, the former Conservative MP for Gower, and Colin Valentine, chairman of CAMRA. Until 23 October, Page was also on the board.

Describing his role within Drinkers' Voice, Page said: “I was instrumental in setting up the organisation, which is looking to act as a campaign and lobbying organisation beyond the remit of CAMRA, representing anybody who involves drinking in moderation, responsibly, in the debate about alcohol and health and wellbeing.”

Page was appointed chief executive of CAMRA on 1 November 2014, replacing Mike Benner. Page had previously held positions as the chief executive of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and was the former national director of homeless charity Emmaus UK.
