Meet The Team – James Taylor

We would like you to get to know the people behind Beer52. Whether it’s the brains of the business, the people that pick the beers or the guys that answer your queries. This week its James our marketing whizz…

Whats your role at Beer52?

I’m officially the Head of Marketing and Analysis, analysing all the different campaigns we do and looking at ways to better connect with our existing and potential customers through all marketing channels. In other words, an unholy amount of looking at spreadsheets and calculator bashing.

Whats your story?
I was born in Bristol but raised in Glasgow. Studied Mathematics and Physics at the University there. I’ve been in various interesting data analysis positions but jumped at the opportunity to work for such an exciting company and such interesting people, especially where the subject matter is beer. My family have always been supportive of all my unusual education and career jumps which I am very thankful for, they mean the world to me.

Otherwise always been a very keen musician, from playing piano in jazz bands to producing and releasing dance music worldwide, and more recently learning German with varying success. Researching and visiting interesting, new countries uses up the remaining time.

Favourite Beer?

Has to be either Oakham Citra or Weihanstephaner Kristallweissbier! The former an excellent session ale and the latter a refreshing filtered wheat beer. Beautiful!

What movie character do you most associate with?

Milton Waddams from Office Space

Special Talent?

I can open beer bottles with literally any object, most recently a shovel.

Pick of the box for this month?

TRNS, not only does it look amazing, it tastes just as good.

Meet more of the team next week! 🙂

Thanks for reading!
