UK: Altria representative leaves SABMiller board
One of SABMiller's directors has stepped down.
The brewer confirmed today (3 May) that Nancy De Lisi, a non-executive director and member of the audit committee, will be replaced by Dinyar Devitre in the position.
De Lisi had been a representative of the Altria Group, with whom SABMiller has a relationship agreement dating from the merger of South African Breweries and Miller Brewing Company in 2002. She is vacating the position at SABMiller as a result of her retirement from Altria.
As senior vice president and CFO of Altria, Devitre will join the SABMiller board as a non-executive director and a member of the audit committee with effect from 16 May.
"We wish (De Lisi) a long and happy retirement and she goes with our good wishes," said SABMiller chairman Meyer Kahn. "In her place, we look forward to welcoming Mr Devitre to our board, and to benefiting from his contribution to our endeavours."
Altria Group has a 28.6% economic and voting interest in SABMiller.
