Wells and Young’s Brewing Co
What does your business do?
My business is beer! Wells and Young Brewing Co is the UK’s largest private brewing company. We brew ales, beers and lagers of all types and have some really strong brands in our portfolio such as McEwans, Estrella, and of course Wells and Young. We supply both small and large companies across the whole UK.
What is a typical working day for you/what does it look like?
As the Scottish National Account Manager a typical working day for me would see me interacting with key accounts across Scotland such as wholesalers and managed customers. My work involves a lot of travelling to meet clients and to make sure they are satisfied with our products.
What do you use Len Lothian for?
I personally don’t interact with Len Lothian much but the company as a whole uses Len Lothian for storage of our in-store event supplies such as sample stock, point of sale and our mobile bar. Their warehouses are in good locations so it means that our staff have quick and easy access to supplies when they need it. We also make use of their specialised equipment like the Forklift and they regularly take receipt of new deliveries for us.
What’s your top tip in Business?
Good grief that’s a tough question! My top tip in business would be to be flexible and act quickly. Not all clients are the same and some of them might have requests that are a bit different than what you are used to but if you can act quickly and fulfill their needs then you will build a strong relationship with them.
