Greene King Pub Partners has appointed Dan Robinson as its new managing director.

Robinson, who begins his role this week, will hold overall responsibility for its leased, tenanted and franchise business unit Pub Partners.

He will report into Wayne Shurvinton – the previous MD of Pub Partners – who has moved into a new role as partnerships and ventures managing director, following a realignment of Greene King’s divisional structure.

Robinson has worked at Greene King since 2016 and previously held the position of asset optimisation director. Prior to this, he held roles as interim managing director of Greene King Local Pubs and central operations director across Greene King’s managed pubs.

He has also held operational roles at Spirit Pub Company, Punch and Scottish & Newcastle.

Robinson said: “It is a real privilege to be appointed managing director of Greene King Pub Partners. Having worked in operational and leadership roles across the Greene King business over the last seven years, I have long been an admirer of the team and the brilliant Partners we work with.

“I cannot wait to get started and help our Partners continue to grow their pub businesses with the support of our great team.”

Shurvinton added: “I am delighted with the appointment of Dan as managing director of Pub Partners. With his years of experience in the pub trade Dan understands Pub Partners well and I am excited to see him take the business forward building on the great work that the team has already delivered.”
