UK: SABMiller appoints company secretary
SABMiller has appointed a replacement company secretary.
John Davidson, a senior partner at law firm Lovells, will join the London-based brewer as company secretary and general counsel on the planned retirement of the current company secretary, Andrew Tonkinson.
The changeover is expected to take effect in August, with Davidson joining SABMiller's executive committee, SABMiller said today (26 May).
Davidson has worked with SABMiller for a number of years, the company noted, starting in 1998 when Lovells was appointed UK legal adviser to the brewer for the group reconstruction and re-listing of the holding company in the UK. He was also involved in the Miller Brewing and Bavaria transactions in 2002 and 2005.
"I am very pleased to welcome John to SABMiller," the company's chief executive, Graham Mackay, said. "He brings a combination of extensive legal experience as well as considerable knowledge of the beer industry gained as an adviser to the group. He will be an excellent addition to the management team at SABMiller and we all look forward to working with him."
