Asia Pacific Breweries has announced some changes to its senior management team.

The company said today (3 August) that Michael van der Poel, previously general manger of APB's northern Vietnam-based Hatay Brewery, has been appointed general manager of APB's Cambodia brewery.

During his three year tenure, Hatay saw volumes rise in the region of 30%. Van der Poel also oversaw the installation of the brewery's first canning line which "significantly improved the revenue", the brewer said.

Van der Poel's position of general manager at HBL will be temporarily filled by Kong Wai Tai, who will take on his responsibilities as acting general manager of the North Vietnam brewery.

APB is a Singapore-based brewer with operations across the sub-continent, Asia Pacific and Australasia. The Tiger Beer brewer is a joint venture between Singaporean conglomerate Fraser & Neave and Dutch brewing giant Heineken. APB's operations include breweries in New Zealand, China and India. In New Zealand, it owns local group DB Breweries. In China, APB has operations in Shanghai and Hainan. In India, APB owns a majority stake in Aurangabad Breweries and in a joint venture that is building a greenfield site in Andhra Pradesh.
