Western Australian hospitality group Triple-1-Three has announced a range of internal promotions and appointments for its brewing arm – Otherside Brewing Co.
Kyle Lyons (pictured) has been promoted to head of sales, Courtney Bevilacqua has been promoted to sales and marketing co-ordinator while new addition Jody Carmichael joins the sales team.
Kyle has been with Otherside since its inception and Triple-1-Three said he had been instrumental in the growth of the brand from a “gypsy brewer to one of WA’s fastest growing craft beer brands in just three years”. Before joining in 2017 he was head of sales for WA coffee brand Darkstar while he has also been a contestant on MasterChef Australia.
“I’ve been very fortunate to be part of the Otherside team since it started,” Kyle said. “When I joined, we had just one brew under our brewing belt. Today it’s one of WA’s fastest growing brands delivering a solid core range alongside continually evolving and experimental brew lines.
“It’s all driven by a fantastic culture and a deep commitment to quality and experimentation. I’m excited to take on the challenge of head of sales and continue the brand’s growth into new markets.”
Courtney joined Otherside in 2019 to support the sales team while Jody brings with her 14 years’ hospitality industry experience having worked for the likes of Little Creatures and Four Pillars Gin.
Confirming the appointments, Triple-1-Three CEO Al Taylor said: “Following the challenges of 2020, we are thrilled to be expanding our team with these wonderful internal promotions and new appointments. Kyle has been a key team member passionately leading the Otherside sales strategy. Over the uncertainty of the last 12 months, he has proven himself as a leader with an innate ability to pivot, support and motivate. He is an integral part of the team and of the long-term growth strategy.
“We are also delighted to promote Courtney and to welcome Jody into the fold. Both have a lot of experience within the sector and they bring that knowledge, insight and enthusiasm with them into their new roles.”
