Jon Dale, director of communications for Stonegate, and previously head of corporate communications with Ei Group, has left the company.
Tim Painter, HR Director, Stonegate Group said: “We confirm Jon Dale has left the company following our business realignment as we continue to integrate the Stonegate and Ei business functions.
“Kate Vicary, formerly Director of Special Projects is now appointed Director of Communications and Business Planning moving forward. We thank Jon for all his help and support throughout the integration period.”
Dale, who joined Ei Group from Sainsbury's Argos in 2017, was responsible for re-energising the business' internal and external communications, public affairs, events and stakeholder engagement strategies before it was sold to Stonegate for £1.27bn in March 2020.
Since then Dale played a key role in helping the new business navigate its way through the integration and ongoing global pandemic.
Dale, who it is understood is looking to remain in the industry, is also the current Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group Steering Committee and PubAid Steering Group member.
