Greene King has rejoined the British Beer & Pub Association, the leading trade association representing Britain’s brewers and pubs.
One of the UK’s biggest pub retailers, Greene King has over 2,700 pubs, restaurants and hotels across the UK. It has rejoined the BBPA as a member after 10 years.
As part of its membership to the BBPA, Greene King CEO Nick Mackenzie will sit on the board of the trade association.

Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said:
“We are delighted to have Greene King back on-board as a member of the British Beer & Pub Association and for Nick Mackenzie, their Chief Executive, to be joining our Board. As passionate supporters of the beer and pub trade, I know Greene King will play a key role in helping us campaign for the wellbeing of the sector.”
