The Crisp Malting Group, part of Anglian Maltings Holdings, has appointed Adrian Dyter as its new managing director, from this summer. He will succeed Euan Macpherson, who is retiring after a lifetime career in the brewing, distilling and malting industries, the last 29 years with Crisp.
Mr Dyter is currently global category manager at Carlsberg, where he is responsible for raw material purchasing for Carlsberg’s global spread of breweries, based at the Danish multinational’s offices in Switzerland. From 1997 to 2012 he worked for Boortmalt and its predecessor businesses Greencore Malt and Pauls Malt as chief commercial officer.
“Adrian’s skills and experience are ideally suited to the role,” says group chief executive David Thompson. “The fact he is very familiar with Crisp as a competitor and, more recently, as a customer will give him a good head start. Adrian will be well supported in his endeavours to further develop the company and its support to customers.” Mr Dyter will move back to Britain to start the handover process.
“During the time Euan has been at the helm, Crisp has expanded significantly, acquiring maltings in Alloa, Clackmannanshire and Mistley, Essex and establishing a very strong relationship with barley growers,” continues Mr Thompson. “He has been directly responsible for building up the export trade to USA and Japan in particular. His development of sales to the burgeoning craft brewing sector at home and abroad has been unstinting and this is reflected in the volume and diversification of Crisp’s sales.”
