“As president, I will continue Mark’s work to ensure the Scottish beer and pub industry’s priorities remain at the top of the policy agenda here in Scotland. I’d like to thank Mark Baird for his contribution over the past year, and hope to build on his good work.”
Davidson is Punch Taverns’ operations director for Scotland. The SBPA represents Scotland’s brewers and pub companies and is part of the British Beer & Pub Association.
