According to BrewDog, Marshall brings more than 20 years of experience of beverage experience and was reportedly a key member of the financial leadership at Coca-Cola European Partners. BrewDog stated:
“At BrewDog, Jason will be responsible for enhancing the brewery’s finance function as it prepares for a period of accelerated domestic and international growth in 2018 and beyond. This will involve the development of business partnership functions to support growth, strategic vision for the global opportunities of the business, personnel development of the expanding finance team, and coordinating plans for the business’ third party suppliers.”
Speaking about Marshall’s appointment, James Watt, BrewDog Co-Founder, stated:
“Jason’s passion, vision and tenacity is what most excites me about this addition to the BrewDog family. His experience in working in a complex and multinational business is exactly what we need at this juncture in the BrewDog journey. His proven emphasis on fostering a positive team culture aligns with our mission of being the best company to work for. Ever. Jason will play a crucial role amongst our senior team in ensuring we never lose sight of this.”
Marshall then added:
“You can’t help but be impressed with BrewDog’s track record over the last ten years. The rise of the craft beer scene in the UK owes a great deal to BrewDog’s bold, resourceful and idiosyncratic approach to doing business. I’ve long been impressed by the contagious passion of James and Martin and the company’s socially conscious values, especially its Unicorn Fund. I look forward to joining a world-class team and contributing to the next chapter of BrewDog and the global craft beer movement.”
The appointment of Marshall comes a few months after BrewDog announced it was prepping to launch a new Regulation A+ offer in the U.S. This followed last year’s security offer when BrewDog’s U.S. subsidiary filed to raise up to $50 million. BrewDog U.S.A closed the round with about $7 million secured.
