Diageo has appointed a logistics director for Western Europe - a newly-created role.

María Andrés Arrizabalaga will take on the position in Madrid alongside her current responsibilities as supply chain director for Diageo Iberia, the company confirmed today (30 October). She will be in charge of the design, cost and service of Diageo's physical logistics and warehouse network in Western Europe, a company spokesperson told just-drinks.

María Andrés, 41, joined Diageo in 2004 and has held a number of finance positions, the group said. She has an MBA in Economy and Enterprise Direction from the IESE Business School of the University of Navarra.

Last month, Diageo changed managing directors at its Iberian unit.
