AUS: Chief strategy officer quits Foster's Group

By | 23 April 2009

The chief strategy officer at Foster's Group has resigned.

David Bortolussi, who has been with Foster's since 2004, is leaving the group with a view to becoming chief financial and operating officer at Pacific Brands, whose brands include Dunlop, Hush Puppies and Slazenger.

Bortolussi joined Foster's from McKinsey & Company and was appointed to the executive management team in 2006. Following the resignation of Trevor O'Hoy as Foster's CEO last June, Bortolussi was named as a potential replacement. The company instead appointed Ian Johnston as its permanent CEO in September.

"I would like to personally thank David for his contribution to reshaping Foster's strategy and performance improvement agenda, and wish him well in his new role," said Johnston.

Bortolussi will assume his new position at Pacific Brands in June.
