Pavlos Photiades elected for second term as The Brewers of Europe President

Pavlos Photiades was re-elected President of The Brewers of Europe for a second term at the annual general meeting of the Association in Brussels, which took place on June 6th 2018. Pavlos Photiades commented on his appointment, “I am honoured to continue in this role at such an exciting and challenging time for brewers. I look forward to working with the team on issues affecting our sector at large.”

Mr. Photiades is Managing Director of Photos Photiades Breweries and Photos Photiades Group, a leading brewery and beverage production and distribution group of companies in Cyprus and has been serving as a President of The Brewers of Europe since 2016.

Upon his last election, Mr. Photiades had commented “Europe’s brewing world is changing fast with the combined trends of consolidation and the blossoming of small and medium-sized breweries. I will see to it that [we] capitalise on these changes”.

Two years later, Mr. Photiades’ ongoing leadership and dedication has contributed largely to the creation of the first ever Brewers Forum event in Brussels. From June 6th to 8th, The Brewers of Europe welcomed hundreds of brewing professionals from 40 countries for two days of exhibitions, debates, tasting and seminars about beer.

Pierre-Olivier Bergeron, Secretary General of The Brewers of Europe congratulated Mr. Photiades on his appointment, saying “Since joining The Brewers of Europe Board several years ago and for the past two years serving as President, Pavlos Photiades has proven himself to be an invaluable member of the Association’s top level of governance. I look forward to continuing our great collaboration. He has already made a big contribution to the work of The Brewers of Europe”.
