Dan Jago is stepping down from his role as chief executive at Berry Bros & Rudd, it has been announced. 

Jago took on the role of chief executive in 2015, having moved over from his position as head of beers, wines and spirits at Tesco. Prior to this he was the joint managing director of Bibendum.

Lizzy Rudd will assume the role of executive chairman until a new chief executive officer is appointed.

She said: “Over the last three years Dan Jago has made an extremely important contribution at Berry Bros & Rudd, introducing significant operational and commercial initiatives that have made us a much stronger organisation.

“With Dan having completed what he set out to achieve, the Board and Dan have agreed that the time is now right for new leadership to guide the company through the next phase of growth.”

Jago added: “Leading Berry Bros & Rudd for the past three and a half years has been a tremendous honour. We have achieved an enormous amount in that time and I am grateful to everyone in the business for their hard work and commitment. I wish Berry Bros & Rudd all the very best in the years ahead.”
