Managing Director, Forum of British Pubs.
A former drinks company director, Ian Cass has now taken the reins at the Forum of British Pubs and is looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.
Ian lives in Cheshire with his family and began his career in 1981 with the Distillers Company, which eventually grew into Diageo. He started out as a junior salesman calling on pubs and bars throughout the UK, before managing UK sales and marketing teams with a focus on new product development and key account management.
Ian then formed several companies, specialising in new product development, research, training, and consultancy within the UK drinks market and created the Cheshire based Gin company “Hunters”.
Ian joined the Forum of Private Business in 2013 and became managing director in 2015.
