Timothy Taylor brewery in Keighley is seeking a new head for the 155-year-old business.

One of the UK’s oldest family breweries, it was established in 1858 when Timothy Taylor set up shop in Keighley.

The company remains in the Taylor family, and is the last independent brewery of its type left in West Yorkshire.

As part of a succession process, Timothy Taylor will appoint a new chief executive, who will lead and develop the business to its fullest potential.

Initially, the incoming CEO will work closely with managing director, Charles Dent, to understand the heritage and key drivers of the business, and subsequently develop strategies that deliver profitability and shareholder returns and recognise the role Timothy Taylor plays in its local community.
