The Scotch Whisky Association has six departments
which fulfil its role of protecting, promoting and representing the
industry at home and overseas.
The Scotch Whisky Association has a chief executive, David Frost, a deputy CEO, Julie Hesketh-Laird, four other directors, and a Chief Information Officer. Collectively they are responsible for ensuring the trade body 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.
Within the SWA there are six different departments 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 our central London office.
