Pernod Ricard UK announces new On-Trade Channel Director
Pernod Ricard UK has today confirmed the internal promotion of James Bremner, currently Customer Business Manager, to the position of On-Trade Channel Director, reporting to Chris Ellis, Pernod Ricard UK Commercial Director.
Bremner has over 10 years experience in the drinks trade, joining Pernod Ricard UK as an Account Development Executive in 2009. He then joined Diageo as Head of Key Accounts (On-Trade), as well as Camden Town Brewery as Head of Groups (On-Trade), for a period just short of three years. Returning to Pernod Ricard UK in 2015, he took on the role of Customer Business Manager, firstly for the Independent Wholesale Channel and then his most recent role overseeing Sainsbury’s.

Having acquired a wide understanding of the UK on-trade during his career, James is a fantastic example of development within our business and I wish him every success in his new role.”
