Wetherspoon has appointed Helen Dumbreck as general manager of Scotland, with responsibility for the company’s 60 pubs throughout the country.
Dumbreck (pictured) has worked for Wetherspoon since 2000 and previously held roles as a pub manager, area manager and regional manager.
She will now have overall responsibility for Wetherspoon’s Scottish pubs, which employ more than 2,500 people and have annual gross sales of £160m.
“Helen richly deserves her promotion to general manager," says Wetherspoon chief executive John Hutson. “She is Wetherspoon through and through and our Scottish pubs are in very safe hands with her at the helm.”
Originally from Ardrossan, North Ayrshire, Dumbreck started her Wetherspoon career as a part-time bar associate at The Salt Cot (Saltcoats), where she spent three years.
She spent a further three years at The Wheatsheaf in Kilmarnock, becoming pub manager there in 2005, followed by four years in Glasgow at The Society Room, before being appointed as area manager in 2011 and regional manager in 2017.
