New Head for Moosehead
Guelph, Ont. October 11, 2017 – Canada’s oldest brewery has turned to face a new direction with the appointment of Kevin Daury as chief executive officer. The independent brewery, celebrating its sesquicentennial this year, announced this appointment Monday morning.
“Mr. Daury has extensive experience with beer and brewing and has been a longtime champion for our products,” said Brittany Jones, head of the search committee. “He was the perfect candidate for the role.”
Daury previously held a management position with the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) for eight years, and has served several small breweries in Hamilton in a communications and sales capacity. He is a graduate of the Schulich School of Business at York University, with an MBA.
The head of the brewery serves the role of streamlining operations throughout Moosehead’s production and retail centres, and leading the charge to turning the company around after a devastating brewery fire last year. Many would be skittish of the difficulty of the immense job, but not Daury. “It’s been a challenging year, to say the least. Our profits have taken a dip and we’re not out of the woods just yet, but I have 150 years of history, quality, and reliability behind me,” he said. “I am up to the task, I am ready to be the new face of this brewery.”
Moosehead Breweries was founded in the Halifax, Nova Scotia, backyard of Susannah Oland in 1867, and for the last 150 years has been a constant in Canadian homes for all of Canada’s important milestones. Through two World Wars, disasters, and prohibition, Moosehead has proudly remained Canada’s last major Canadian-owned brewery, offering a wide selection of beers suitable for any occasion.
