Tom Long, current CEO of Miller Brewing, has been named president and chief commercial officer, while Gavin Hattersley, current senior vice president of finance at Miller, has been handed the role of CFO.

The appointments to the MillerCoors leadership team will become effective upon the closing of the transaction, which is expected to take place on 30 June.
