Owen, who moved up to become CFO in July last year, will leave at the end of this year, to "pursue opportunities closer to his family in New York", the Chicago-headquartered company said earlier today. An internal promotion will bring in Marc André Tousignant as his replacement.

Tousignant is currently the CFO for Beam Suntory's Americas regional division.

"We are tremendously grateful to John for his outstanding leadership and numerous contributions to our success," said CEO Matt Shattock. "We're pleased that he will remain with us through year-end to ensure a seamless transition to Marc André."

Tousignant has been with Beam Suntory since 2014, moving from Avon to become CFO for the group's global supply chain. He assumed his current role last year.

In his new position, he will report in to Shattock and serve on Beam Suntory's board of directors.
