The Scotch Whisky Association has six departments
which fulfil its role of protecting, promoting and representing the
industry at home and overseas.
The SWA has a chief executive(presently in an acting capacity during a recruitment period), a deputy CEO, four other directors, and a Chief Information Officer. Collectively they are responsible for ensuring the association meets and surpasses expectations.
The Association is governed by a Council, a self electing body, of 12 to 16 members. The Council appoints a number of committees to assist it and to advise it on different aspects of its work.
There are six different departments at the SWA working to sustain Scotch Whisky’s place as the world’s leading high-quality spirit drink and its long-term growth worldwide. The SWA Team are positioned between our Edinburgh HQ and central London office.
