SABMiller's Carlton and United Breweries CEO sets departure date
SABMiller is on track to be purchased by AB InBev on 10 October
SABMiller has confirmed its Carlton and United Breweries CEO, Ari Mervis, will leave the Australian unit after the Anheuser-Busch InBev takeover.
Mervis, who is likely to be joined by a string of SABMiller executives exiting their posts as the deal's completion date looms, will stand down in October, the brewer said today. It is unclear who will replace Mervis, however AB InBev announced last week that Jan Craps is due to take over as the zone president for Asia Pacific South for the enlarged company.
Craps was one of 18 people named to a new permanent leadership team unveiled by AB InBev last week. The team, which contains just one SABMiller executive, will take over global operations for AB InBev once the SABMiller takeover completes. This month, the company set a 10 October target for the deal.
SABMiller executives are not the only employees to be affected by the impending deal. AB InBev will close SABMiller's regional offices in Miami, Hong Kong and Beijing, while its UK office in Woking is expected to close in due course.
