The UK arm of InBev has appointed a new marketing director.

Devin Kelly has replaced Phil Rumbol, who has moved to Cadbury, the company confirmed today (5 May).

Kelly, 38, will report to Richard Evans, president of InBev UK and Ireland. Kelly assumed the position on 1 May.

Prior to joining InBev as global director of new brands in 2003, Kelly worked for Labatt USA - part of Interbrew as InBev was then known. During six years with Labatt, he held posts as director of marketing for Canadian brands and director of innovation.

Last month, InBev UK announced that its president, Colin Pendrick, was to be replaced by Evans after only nine months in the position.
