We are delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Lorimer, who is an outstanding finance professional. We very much look forward to him joining the business.”

In a statement to just-drinks, Diageo said: "Stuart Lorimer has made a great contribution throughout his time with the Diageo business, particularly leading the finance function for our manufacturing operations. We wish him the very best for the future.”
