Beers with Peers: SK Brand Spotlight 2


The SPMA is proud to welcome Mark Watson, V.P. of Marketing with Great Western Brewing to our
Saskatchewan Brand Spotlight event February 8, 2017 at Crave Kitchen & Wine Bar. 

Mark is a consumer insight expert having worked on both the client and agency side of the food and beverage industry. With over 20 years of diverse marketing experience, Mark will share lessons learned during competing in the most cut-throat marketing categories in the world.

Born and raised in Toronto, which explains why he struggles saying “Sask-atch-e-wan”, Mark moved his family west to begin a new chapter as the Vice President of Marketing for Great Western Brewing in 2014.  He enjoys cottage life, the mountains and is a regular at his local spinning club. While in the beer industry, the portfolio of products that he marketed represented some of Canada’s biggest and recognizable beer brands including Labatt Blue, Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Labatt Genuine Draft and Lucky.

Mark changed gears in 2006 and decided to enter the world of client service as consultant at Sklar Wilton & Associates, a leading Canadian marketing advisory firm in Toronto.  With a focus on clarity, he provided strategic advisory to help solve business challenges to the following Canadian companies: Heinz Canada, Molson Coors, Mars Confectionery and Mackenzie Investments.

Please join us and welcome Mark to Regina, for a fun and interesting session including a tasting of Original 16, the number one premium beer in Saskatchewan with over 2,000 taps spanning across Western Canada.

You'll also have a chance to network with marketing, advertising and communications professionals from across South Saskatchewan!

Tickets include a pint of beer, a cocktail or wine, along with a selection of appetizers.

We hope to see you there!
