Ex-PwC man steps up at Wolves

Independent brewing and pub retailing business Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries has appointed Jim Taylor to the role of group finance director with immediate effect.

Before taking on the post at Wolves, Taylor was director of corporate finance at Big Five firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in London. Ralph Findlay, the group’s chief executive officer, has acted as FD until Taylor’s appointment.

The arrival of Taylor comes just weeks after shareholders narrowly rejected a hostile takeover bid from rival company Pubmaster. Forty-seven per cent of Wolves’ shareholders voted in favour of the bid, ending a year-long battle for control of the chain.

Wolves operates four breweries and over 1800 pubs across the UK.
