GLOBAL: Grolsch gets senior management changes
The company said today (25 April) that Grolsch International's president Rob Snel has been appointed as managing director of Royal Grolsch, replacing current CEO Ab Pasman.
Pasman, who will leave the company on 15 May, has been "pivotal to building the Grolsch company and the Grolsch brand over the last four years," the company said.
SABMiller Europe managing director Alan Clark added: "I am delighted that Rob Snel has agreed to become managing director of Grolsch. His considerable enthusiasm for the brand and experience in establishing it in new markets will be essential as we expand the brand's distribution footprint to exploit SABMiller's global platform."
SABMiller has also appointed Jonathan Timmis, currently finance director of the group's UK subsidiary Miller Brands, to be finance director of Royal Grolsch. Timmis replaces Arjan Kaaks who is leaving the company, SABMiller added.
