UK: Carlsberg UK CEO departs
Following a review of operations, Doug Clydesdale, CEO Carlsberg UK has decided to leave the business. He will be replaced by Isaac Sheps.
Sheps, aged 59 and currently CEO of Carlsberg South East Europe, will take up his position on 20 October. Clydesdale, the company said, is looking for fresh challenges after three years as CEO and 11 years with the business.
Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen, Carlsberg's president and CEO, thanked Clydesdale for his contribution and said Carlsberg UK had "clearly demonstrated good improvements" under his leadership.
He added: "We are now entering a new phase of development and the ambition is to bring the UK's earnings closer in line with Carlsberg's targets for Western Europe."
A spokesperson for Carlsberg told just-drinks that Clydesdale will be leaving the company at the end of the month.
