AG Barr has announced that its finance director and operations director will retire early in the next financial year, with their replacements having already been found.

The UK-based soft drinks group said yesterday (28 January) that William Grant & Sons' group finance director Alex Short will replace Iain Greenock as finance director from 1 July. To fill the shoes of Alan Bibby as operations director, AG Barr has promoted Andrew Memmott from his former position as head of manufacturing. Memmott will take on the role from 1 March, the company said.

In addition, Julie Barr, who has been with the company for four years in the role of commercial finance manager, will become company secretary and legal affairs manager from 1 March.

AG Barr chief executive Roger White said: "Alan and Iain retire with our very best wishes and sincere thanks for the huge contribution they have both made to AG Barr over many years. At the same time we are delighted to appoint Alex, Andrew and Julie all of whom will add significantly to our future plans for the business."
