Molson Coors has lined up two directorial changes.

The North American brewer said yesterday (1 June) that consumer retail executive Roger Eaton and banking executive Louis Vachon will replace retiring directors John Cleghorn and David O’Brien. The move, which takes effect immediately, sees the two come on board in an independent directorial capacity.

Eaton is chief operations officer for restaurant chain Yum! Brands. Vachon, meanwhile, is president, CEO and director of the National Bank of Canada.

“Roger brings a strong global perspective and extensive knowledge of brand marketing across international markets,” said company chairman Andrew Molson. “Louis brings invaluable banking experience and a deep knowledge of the financial sector.

“Together they will provide tremendous capabilities and insight as Molson Coors continues to build growth, scale and profits in the global beer industry.”

Molson Coors' board comprises 14 directors.
