Business Development Manager - Scotland
Chris has spent the entirety of his adult life in the hospitality industry, beginning his days as a bartender/waiter with Greene King before moving on to the contrasting experiences of the Edinburgh nightclub scene and Muirfield golf club. Continuing to develop his experience, Chris went on to manage a number of Edinburgh’s high end cocktail bars; in 2017, he took the plunge to step out from behind the bar and joined the team at Love Drinks to look after the on-trade in Scotland. With a brief stint at The Secret Garden distillery in the mix, he continued in this role before excitedly joining the team at Speciality Brands in January 2023.
When not working you are likely to find him and his family at the beach, in the woods, up a hill, or in general anywhere outdoors. “There’s no such thing as beach weather” — he does live in Scotland after all. Golf, running, podcasts, and watching his beloved Livingston FC take up the rest of his time.
