Brad Banducci (pictured), the recently appointed director of Woolworths Liquor Group, has been appointed a director of Gage Roads Brewing following the resignation of Steve Greentree on Friday.

The baton change comes in the wake of Greentree's appointment as chief operating officer for Woolworths' Australian Supermarkets and Petrol Division.

The Board of Gage Roads, which is 25 per cent owned by Woolworths, thanked Greentree for being a key supporter of the companies' private label partnership.

"During his tenure, Steven helped oversee Gage Road's production volumes grow from 60,000 to over 1.2 million cartons per annum and the turnaround of the profitability of the company," Gage Roads said.

Banducci, who recently succeeded Greentree's role in the liquor team, was formerly CEO of the Cellarmasters Group and joined Woolworths following the acquisition of that business last year.

"Brad has a distinguished business background in Australia and internationally including 14 years with The Boston Consulting Group where he was a vice president and director," Gage Roads said.

"He has extensive experience in the drinks industry, direct sales channels and beverage manufacturing and the Board looks forward to working with him to continue the successful growth of the company."
