The change of chairman at Anheuser-Busch InBev will take place in April

Anheuser-Busch InBev has confirmed a change of chairman.

The brewer said earlier today (31 August) that Peter Harf will step down from the position, and leave the board, in April next year. He will be succeeded by fellow board member Kees Storm as chairman.

Harf is set to re-assume his role as executive chairman of non-profit blood cancer cure organisation DKMS. Storm has sat on A-B InBev's board since 2002.

The two will “work together closely” in the coming months to “ensure a smooth transition” of the chairman's responsibilities. Storm will become vice-chairman with immediate effect.
