Brewers Association of New Zealand announces new Executive Director

The Brewers Association of New Zealand is delighted to announce the appointment of Dylan Firth as its Executive Director, based in Wellington.

Rory Glass, Managing Director of Lion and Chairman of the Brewers Association, says Firth’s skills, strong networks and advocacy experience will deliver considerable value for the New Zealand brewing industry.

“We are delighted to welcome Dylan to the role. He is passionate about the brewing industry and brings significant experience and understanding of the beverage sector,” Glass says.

Firth says he is excited about the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the industry.

“The brewing industry has changed rapidly in the past decade. I’m committed to providing the Brewers Association members and wider industry with strategic support to help it grow and develop into the future,” Firth says.

Firth joins the Brewers Association after four years with Hospitality New Zealand, most recently as Advocacy and Policy Manager.

The Brewers Association of New Zealand was established in October 2017 as a stand-alone entity, having separated from the Australian Brewers Association. Glass said that the change reflects the unique characteristics of the New Zealand operating and regulatory environments.
