CANADA: Molson Coors appoints Canada CEO

By | 2 June 2009

Brewer Molson Coors has appointed Dave Perkins as the new president and CEO of its domestic Canada business.

Perkins, who takes up the post on 5 June, was most recently president of Molson's global brand and market development division. Before that, he was both president of Molson USA and of market development for Molson North America.

In Canada, he will replace Kevin Boyce, who has served as CEO for the past four years and is "stepping down to pursue other opportunities", Molson said today (2 June).

"We appreciate Kevin's leadership and his contributions to making Molson one of the strongest and most popular brands in the Canadian market," said Molson Coors global CEO Peter Swinburn.

Perkins will continue to head the Molson's strategy organisation in Denver and chair the company's Brand & Innovation Council, which sets marketing strategy for the group.

Molson Coors' net profits for the first three months of 2009 rose to US$76m, compared to $34m for the same period a year earlier.
