Coopers appoints new national marketing manager

Kate Dowd steps into the role as part of a series of new leadership changes

Coopers Brewery has restructured its senior management to drive the company’s future growth and appointed Kate Dowd as its new national marketing manager.

Coopers has also appointed Mark Goulmy, the former general manager sales and marketing for premium beverages for over 18 years, as Coopers’ national manager, sales and partner brands. 

Dowd has more than 20 years’ experience in the beverages sector, working for numerous multi-national organisations including CUB, Asahi, and Anheuser-Busch InBev in Australia and overseas. Most recently she was head of marketing at PERKii probiotics.

Coopers commercial manager, Michael Shearer, has also been appointed general manager, responsible for day-to-day operations of the brewery. Shearer has worked at Coopers for more than 15 years.

The new organisational structure is designed to provide additional support for managing director, Dr Tim Cooper, and to provide a more effective and efficient engagement with customers.  Coopers director of marketing and innovation, Cam Pearce, said Dowd’s appointment followed a nationwide search, which resulted in a number of outstanding candidates being interviewed.  

“Kate has extensive experience in the beer industry and fast-moving consumer goods area,” Pearce said.  

“She will oversee marketing across Australia for Coopers and its partner brands. We believe she has the experience and expertise to make a significant contribution in what will be an exciting period ahead.”
