Craft beverages accelerator Mighty Craft has announced that CEO and Managing Director Mark Haysman has tendered his resignation and will leave the business on 3 July.

He has resigned immediately from his position as a director of the company.

Haysman said: “Mighty Craft has made significant progress on its expansion and diversification strategy over the past few years.

“This has left the Company well-placed to become a leading player in the beer and premium spirits markets. This has been a very hard decision for me but it feels like the appropriate time to allow the Board to guide the Company through its next phase.”

Non-Executive Chairman Chris Malcolm said: “On behalf of the Board of Mighty Craft, I would like wish Mark well in his future endeavours.” 

The Board has appointed Jess Lyons as Acting Chief Executive Officer.

Haysman’s resignation is the latest of several leadership moves in the drinks industry of late, after Angus McPherson announced he was leaving Diageo Australia, and Robert Iervasi announced his plans to leave Asahi.
