Wed 3rd Jul 2019 - BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds to step down
BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds to step down: British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) chief executive Brigid Simmonds is to step down after ten years in the role. Simmonds is leaving to become chairman of the new Betting and Gaming Council, which will combine the Association of British Bookmakers with the Remote Gambling Association. She will step down on 11 October, with the search for a replacement under way. BBPA chairman and Fuller’s chief executive Simon Emeny said: “Brigid has led the organisation with confidence, sharp intellect and humour when needed and has successfully raised the profile of the BBPA and its members with government, media and other legislative organisations as well as led numerous successful campaigns. She has been an incredible representative of our sector and I know I speak on behalf of all the BBPA members when I say the BBPA’s loss is most definitely the gambling industry’s gain. We wish her every success in the future.”

Multiple operator Appetite For Life scoops three accolades at Ei Group awards: Appetite For Life, the seven-strong company founded by Rob and Alison Thompson, scooped three accolades at Ei Group’s annual awards. As well as picking up the best multiple operator prize, the Thompsons scooped the pub of the year title for The Tap On Tower Street, Harrogate, and the best drink offer. The couple impressed the judges with their “efficient operating processes and exceptionally high standards”. They praised The Tap On Tower Street for its “welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, knowledgeable staff and eclectic drinks range”. The venue offers more than 60 gins, 30 rums and 20 tequilas and mezcals, alongside craft beer and homemade non-alcoholic cordial. The awards were presented at a ceremony at the Old Thorns Hotel in Hampshire. Ei Group chief executive Simon Townsend said: “The standard of entries to our awards this year was exceptionally high with so many of our publicans going the extra mile to make a real difference in their communities. We are delighted these awards provide us the opportunity to shine a light on some of the passion and energy our publicans put into running their businesses, and reward them for their efforts.”
