North Star: January 2023

Once a month we’re awarding one of North’s team the NORTH STAR!

Voted by our bar team and brewery team, the North Star shines for those who have been exceptionally brilliant!

North Star: January 2023

This month, our clear winner for the January North Star is Sam!

Sam joined us two years ago, arriving from Brussels. He’s been an absolute joy to work with and we’re so glad to have him a part of the North family. He started off managing the taproom at Springwell, he’s been over in Birmingham getting North Taproom: Snow Hill off the ground, now he’s done the same in North Taproom: Circle Square! A legend and hero, thank you!

Here’s what some of his voters had to say about why they nominated him:

“Absolutely smashed Birmingham launch and opening Manchester – plus he’s a top lad”

“Sam has been instrumental in the opening of two new sites, bringing hard work, an eye for detail, and the essence of what North is to our first national bars.”

“His effort and dedication has been exemplary, and his involvement within setting up the Manchester site has been nothing more than remarkable. Indeed, his perseverance and outlay of knowledge has truly been instrumental in allowing the team (myself included) to truly integrate themselves with the North culture.”

“Sam has been amazing at supporting the opening of both North Taprooms – working to train the teams at both sites, communicating between the two, assisting the management teams to find their feet and being a genuine good egg! Since he joined North he has always been helpful, attending festivals and supporting multiple sites. We love Sam Russell from Brussels!”

“Sam has done an amazing job with opening Snow Hill and Circle Square, he’s really come into his own and has taken on the challenge with great confidence, leading the teams brilliantly and showing what North is all about!”

Congrats Sam! Bask in the light of the North Star!
