InBev has appointed a replacement for its zone president in the Asia-Pacific region.

The brewing giant confirmed today (12 May) that Dirk Moens would replace Brent Willis, whose resignation was announced earlier this week.

Moens will assume the position from Monday (15 May), InBev said. Willis leaves the company today to pursue a new career opportunity.

Moens has been with InBev and formerly Interbrew for 25 years. He was appointed VP operations in China in 2002. Since 2004, he has been business unit president for China and has led the "growth and consolidation of the business in the country", InBev said.

"Dirk brings a wealth of experience to our executive board of management and I am delighted to have him on board to continue building on the long-term successful future of this exciting Zone for InBev," said InBev CEO Carlos Brito.
