DENMARK: Carlsberg Baltic head resigns

By | 27 January 2009

Carlsberg has confirmed that the president of its Baltic division is to stand down from the post.

Tomas Kucinskas has decided to vacate the position for personal reasons, the brewer told just-drinks today (27 January).

Kucinskas, who will step down on 1 February, will continue in his roles as chairman of Carlsberg's three breweries in the Baltic region, Svyturys-Utenos Alus, Aldaris and Saku.

A spokesperson for Carlsberg said that Kucinskas will not be replaced as Baltic president, as the company is "streamlining".

Late last year, Carlsberg Baltic began to restructure its operations following a decline in the states' economies and increases in excise taxes.

Earlier this month, the brewer said that it will subsequently accelerate its restructuring programme, including reducing its staff by 124 people, in addition to the 80 people announced in November. Most of the job losses will occur at Carlsberg Baltic's headquarters.

Carlsberg Baltic will subsequently become part of the company's Nordic region.
