David Rae

New Board Appointment for Simpsons Malt

In an exciting time for the company, independent maltster Simpsons Malt has announced the appointment of David Rae as an Independent Non-Executive Director on the board.  He will officially join the family from 1 December 2016.

Formerly Managing Director of The North British Distillery, David will further support Simpsons Malt’s drive to grow its market share of the global malting industry.

A qualified chartered accountant, David brings 37 years of drinks experience in the Scotch Whisky Industry. He replaces Sir Ian Good CBE, who will step down in November following 12 years on the Simpsons Malt board, and Simpsons Malt believe he will continue Sir Ian’s success in strengthening links with the Scotch whisky Industry.

David Rae said: “I very much look forward to working with the young and energetic team here at Simpsons Malt. I am confident that my experience and knowledge will support the ongoing growth and development of this innovative company.”
