St Austell Brewery appoint new Head of Technology

St Austell Brewery has announced the appointment of David Parker as Head of Technology at its Trevarthian Road Head Office.

David, formerly Head of Digital and Business Systems at Livewest, takes on responsibility for the wide array of IT teams, resources and systems already deployed within the brewery’s offices and depots across the South West and will also play a critical role in ensuring the implementation of the company’s ongoing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project.

Prior to his 14-year stint at Livewest, 43 year old David has an extensive career portfolio in IT, working with organisations such as Capita, Tor Homes and ICL Sorbus.

Speaking of his new role, David said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for me. St Austell Brewery has grown so rapidly over the last decade and the challenge is to ensure that the breadth of IT support keeps pace with the developing infrastructure of the business.”

The company’s ongoing ERP project, to review and overhaul how the business operates and to define and build the appropriate software programmes and business processes to shape its future, is at the forefront of David’s priorities within the new role.

David added: “I’m happy to roll my sleeves up but this role is all about strategy and vision and I’m delighted to have been chosen to bring that vision into focus and reality.”

Married with four children, David currently lives in Plymouth.
