Agile Media appoints DI commercial director

23 February, 2017

Rob Cullen has joined the expanding Agile Media team as Drinks International’s new commercial director, replacing Roger Betriu.

Cullen has worked in publishing – both traditional and digital - global events and exhibitions throughout his career.

Cullen said: “I’m really excited to be moving into the drinks industry. Straight away I can see there is a buzz in this business. It’s an exciting time to be involved, with bartenders seemingly following the trajectory of super chefs.

"At this early stage I have a great deal to learn about the industry but I hope to combine my experience in publishing and events with the huge body of existing knowledge at Agile Media and that of our customers to help make a great industry become even greater.”

In his spare time Cullen is a musician, a volunteer Lifeboat man and a keen sailor, regularly crossing the English Channel to, in his words, “perform important quality control checks on Normandy’s mussels, cheeses, Bordeaux wines and Calvados”. He is married with two children, a dog, two cats, two goldfish, a hamster and three chickens.
