BELGIUM: InBev stays quiet on Indian appointment
InBev has stayed silent on recent media speculation that Raja Mukerji will join its joint venture with RJ Corp in India.
When contacted by just-drinks today (23 August), Inbev refused to confirm or deny recent reports that Mukerji would be joining the brewer's Indian operations.
Mukerji, who is rumoured to have been appointed as president, would be joining from Bajaj Hindustan, having previously worked for companies including Radico Khaitan, Shaw Wallace and Coca Cola.
InBev finally made a move into the Indian beer market in May, when it entered into a "long-term joint venture agreement" with RJ. InBev said at the time that it will take an initial 49% stake in the venture with the option to increase its participation at a later date.
