SABMiller has appointed an international brand director for its Grolsch beer brand.

The company said today (19 March) that Ronald van Amerongen will join the group marketing team following the brewer's completion of its acquisition of Royal Grolsch last month.

Van Amerongen, who was previously Grolsch director for global marketing, responsible for the growth of the brand in its domestic and international markets, will report to SABMiller's group marketing director Nick Fell in his new role.
Fell said: "Grolsch will provide SABMiller with a powerful addition to its international portfolio, and Ronald brings with him experience and understanding of the Grolsch brand. I look forward to working with Ronald to write the next chapter in this great brand's history."

In the past, van Amerongen has worked for "Friesland foods as marketing director for the juices and still drinks business and as international marketing manager for the enhanced nutrition business," the company added.
