Anheuser-Busch InBev has unveiled its new management team for the UK and Ireland, following InBev's US$52bn takeover of its US-based rival last year.

A-B InBev has today (9 April) confirmed key appointments to its UK and Ireland management team as follows: Andreas Hilger - marketing director; Steve McAllister - divisional director for multiple off-trade; Simon Harrison - divisional director for independent off-trade; Mike Lees - divisional director for Scotland and Ireland; Tim Clay - divisional director for on-trade; Alistair Kemp - trade marketing and tech sales director.

Stuart MacFarlane, the newly appointed president of the A-B InBev UK and Ireland business, and previously head of InBev in the two countries, said: "With Budweiser joining our leading international brand portfolio alongside Stella Artois and Beck's, we have created a stronger, more competitive company with an even better offering to our customers and consumers."

He added: "We want to continue building on the success of Stella Artois, which has grown market share for the first time in five years."
