A directorial switch is set for Heineken Holding

Heineken has lined up a change to the board of directors at Heineken Holding.

The brewer has this morning (7 March) confirmed that Charlotte Kwist will be proposed to succeed her uncle, Mr. D. P. Hoyer, who is set to retire at the age of 71. The change will be proposed at Heineken's shareholders' AGM on 21 April.

Kwist, 43, is a director of both Greenfee, the company in which the Hoyer family has placed its interest in L'Arche Green, and of L'Arche Green itself, the company in which the Heineken and Hoyer families have combined their shareholdings in Heineken Holding. L'Arche Green currently holds a 50.72% interest in Heineken Holding.

Having worked for Procter & Gamble for ten years, Kwist has been “advising international brand producers and retailers as a consultant in brand management, marketing and communication” for the past eight years, Heineken said.

Hoyer has been a member of the Heineken's board since 1972.
