In 1978 Mr M D E M Matthews, at present marketing director of Tennent Caledonian Breweries, becomes sales and marketing director with effect from February 1 as a result of a restructuring of the company’s sales division. This restructuring, as reported in last month’s issue of the Scottish Licensed Trade Guardian, arises from the departure of Mr W H (Bill) Finlay, sales director.
After a lifetime in the trade, starting as a boy of 14, James Horn, representative. Tennent Caledonian Breweries, has retired.
He is seen (right) receiving a presentation from Mr. M. D. E. M. Matthews, sales and marketing director. Mr Horn joined J & R Tennent in 1954, covering the south and west areas of Glasgow and later, with Tennent Caledonian, he looked after Glasgow south and the Clyde coast.
