Calder, the former boss of wholesaler Wallaces Express, took the helm of TCB at the end of March 2014 following TCB owner C&C Group’s acquisition of Wallaces Express; Calder’s departure follows the integration of the two businesses.

Speaking after his appointment, Campbell said: “I’m thrilled to take up the MD role with such an iconic Scottish business.

“Two of my career passions are building strong commercial relationships and driving business growth. I look forward to bringing these skills and working with the team to shape the latest successful chapter in the history of the Tennent’s business in supporting our customers across Scotland.”
