James Simpson joins Timothy Taylor’s board

The Pol Roger Portfolio’s managing director, James Simpson MW, has been appointed as an independent director of Timothy Taylor’s brewery.

An independent, family-run brewery Simpson described Timothy Taylor’s as producing the “Pol Roger of cask ales”.

He will formally take up his new role (which is in addition to his existing position at Pol Roger Portfolio) this March.

He was appointed alongside John Walsh, managing director of Abraham Moon & Sons and the pair are replacing Diana Dent and Jonathan Gamble who stepped down as independent directors last year.

Timothy Taylor’s chairman, Tim Clarke, said: “We are delighted to have been able to appoint to our board two exceptional individuals from businesses that have thrived by sharing the same ethos as Timothy Taylor’s; independence and a focus on developing a strong, premium brand in a highly competitive market. We look forward to benefitting from their experience.”
