I’m proud to announce that Ben Stoten, a former British Army sniper, has become Veterans Brewing’s new Head of Sales & Brand Ambassador.
It’s always been my goal to employ other ex-services personnel and I’ve known Ben for years, so it wasn’t a hard decision when he approached me about coming on board.
Ben joined the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment in 2004 and was deployed to the Middle East several times. Unfortunately, during his last tour of duty to Afghanistan in 2012, Ben stepped on an IED, while trying to reach an injured soldier. He lost both his legs.
Ben finally left the Army in 2014, after two years of rehabilitation and resettlement. Since then, he’s built up some very strong sales experience working for Utility Warehouse. With his knowhow, I believe Veterans Brewing will start to grow even faster.
