NETHERLANDS: Heineken set to replace HR chief
Michael O'Hare is returning to the US
Heineken's head HR officer is leaving after four years with the company citing family reasons.
Michael O'Hare will move back to the US to take up a job with a “multinational” before the end of the year, the Dutch brewer said today (11 June). The process to choose a replacement is underway, Heineken said.
"This has been a difficult decision for Michael,” Heineken chairman & CEO Jean-François van Boxmeer said. “However, personal considerations have led Michael and the family to conclude it is right for them to return to the US.”
O'Hare has previously worked for PepsiCo and Lehman Brothers.
In March, Heineken promoted the head of its Brazil unit to a newly-created role as chief strategy officer.
