Bury St Edmunds: Steve Magnall to leave Greene King
STEVE Magnall, who was appointed deputy managing director of Greene King’s brewing operation at the start of this year, is to leave the Bury St Edmunds-based company, it has been revealed.
Mr Magnall, who has been with Greene King for more than eight years, is to become managing director at Daniel Thwaites, the brewing and pubs company based at Blackburn in Lancashire.
He was appointed to his current role in January following the merger of Greene King’s brewing operation in Bury and its Belhaven brewery at Dunbar in Scotland.
The reorganisation saw Euan Venters, previously managing director at Belhaven, take on the same role across the combined operation and Justin Adams, who previously headed the Bury brewing operation, leave the group.
Mr Magnall, who has an MBA degree, joined Greene King in August 2003 as operations director for the Bury brewing business, a role he held until the reorganisation.

In his new role, which is due to commence by the end of April 2012, Mr Magnall will be responsible for leading the development and operations of Danial Thwaite’s brewing arm, the Thwaites Beer Co, which is in discussions with Blackburn and Darwen councils over plans to relocate to a new brewery.
