Allied Domecq has suspended chief marketing officer Kim Manley pending the outcome of an investigation into what it termed "irregularities", according to a report in IWSR Global Drinks Record.

Allied Domecq corporate affairs director Stephen Whitehead confirmed that Manley has been on leave since the beginning of September but would not discuss the nature of the allegations. It is understood that they are related to supplier dealings.

Simon Stuart, senior vice president for marketing is filling Manley's role on a temporary basis.

"These alleged irregularities are of no material significance to the investment community," Whitehead said.

Manley joined Allied Domecq as chief marketing officer in the autumn of 2000. Previously, he was president of Smirnoff and the marketing director of Guinness UDV in Australia.
