Directorate change at Marston’s

06/09/2017 - 09:14
Marston’s PLC has announced that Peter Dalzells will step down from his role as managing director of Inns and Taverns, and from the board, on 29 September.

Marston’s says the decision was made in line with the company’s changes to its pub operation management structures which it has been making for the last two years.

The operational management of Premium Bars and Restaurants, Property and Human Resources have been separated out from Marston’s Inns and Taverns and now report directly to chief executive Ralph Findlay, leaving Destination pubs and Taverns and Leased Partners within the Marston’s Inns and Taverns operating structure.

Having previously reported to Dalzells, Destination Pubs operations director Iain Jackson and Taverns and Leased Partners operations director Andrew Carlill will both now report directly to Findlay.

Findlay says the changes have been made to reduce complexity, management layers and cost, and to ensure its management is “responsive to its customers.”

He said: “The changes we have made create a leaner, lower cost management structure in pub operations. We remain focused on prioritising quality, service and value while mitigating the impact of well publicised cost pressures affecting the sector.

“I thank Pete - both personally and on behalf of everyone at Marston’s - for his contribution and support over many years.  Pete has been instrumental in the growth of our pubs business and leaves a strong operational team in place.”
