Diageo has added its recently-appointed chief operating officer to its board of directors.


Ivan Menezes, who moved up from Diageo's president of North America to the newly-created role of COO in February, assumed his position on the company's board today (2 July). Menezes, who is widely-tipped to be Diageo's next CEO, will take the role of executive director.

As well as CEO Paul Walsh, CFO Deidre Mahlan and company secretary Paul Tunnacliffe, Diageo's board also consists of eight non-executive directors. Last month, Ho KwonPing, chairman and founder of “lifestyle facility” company Banyan Tree Holdings, was lined up to join Diageo's board on 1 October.
