INDIA: SABMiller India MD to stand down
The head of SABMiller's beer business in India is to leave the group.
Jean-Marc Delpon de Vaux will leave SABMiller India after three years at the helm, the company has confirmed to just-drinks.
"For personal reasons, Jean-Marc Delpon de Vaux has tendered his resignation as managing director, SABMiller India, and will be leaving the company on 7 August," an SABMiller spokesperson confirmed to just-drinks today (29 June).
His replacement has not yet been chosen, the brewer said.
Delpon de Vaux has seen SABMiller's share of India's beer market grow from around 33% to just over 38% during his time in charge, thanks to brands such as Haywards 5000, Foster's and, most recently, Indus Pride.
He joined SABMiller India from Unilever, where he held numerous senior marketing and general management positions, including Chairman and CEO of Unilever Pakistan.
