SOUTH AFRICA: South African Breweries appoints director of communications
Chaloner assumes overall responsibility for SAB's public, media and investor communications. He will be based in London and reports to SAB group chief executive Graham Mackay.
"The appointment of a senior communications professional will help leverage the strong corporate image we enjoy in South Africa into other markets," said Mackay. "Nick has considerable communications expertise, gained over many years in both agency and in-house roles. We are confident he will make a real difference to our global communications activity."
Chalenor has previously been director of corporate affairs at Abbey National as well as working for nine years in international public relations consultancy Hill & Knowlton, where he was executive vice president. During his career in consultancy he led the Athens 2004 Olympic bid communications campaign and launched Pizza Hut in Moscow.
