CAMRA appoints Tim Page as new Chief Executive

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, has today announced Tim Page as its new Chief Executive, who will start work at the not-for-profit organisation on 1st November.

Mr Page brings a wealth of experience from the charitable sector, having previously held positions as Chief Executive of the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and former National Director of homeless charity Emmaus UK.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining CAMRA as Chief Executive and look forward to meeting the volunteers when I start work in November. The Campaign has an outstanding reputation which appears to me to be the result of its large membership, its huge number of hard-working and committed volunteers and its highly-competent and professional team of employees. My aim is to continue to develop CAMRA as both the universally-recognised representative and the most-authoritative voice of real ale drinkers and pub-goers in the UK.” Tim Page, CAMRA Chief Executive.

Tim succeeds Mike Benner as Chief Executive, who has remained within the beer industry and is now Managing Director at SIBA, the Society for Independent Brewers.

“CAMRA are very pleased to welcome Tim Page as our new Chief Executive and look forward to seeing him further cement CAMRA’s place as the voice of beer drinkers within the beer and pub industry.” Colin Valentine, CAMRA National Chairman.

With pubs being lost at a rate of 31 per week across the UK, CAMRA’s current ‘Pubs Matter’ campaign aims to see public houses placed in their own use-class, meaning they can’t be converted or demolished without planning permission, in an effort to curb the closure of pubs. Page will be leading this and many other campaigns as the new Chief Executive of CAMRA.
