Fraser & Neave ended its JV with Heineken this year

Fraser & Neave (F&N) has appointed new chief executives for two of its beverage divisions.

Dato' Ng Jui Sia has been appointed CEO of non-alcoholic beverages and Huang Hong Peng will become CEO of beer, F&N said yesterday (1 July). “These two senior leadership appointments are part of our overall initiative to provide sharper operational focus on two key beverage categories,” F&N board committee chairman Koh Poh Tiong said.

The appointments follow ThaiBev securing a controlling stake in the Singaporean conglomerate last year, after a protracted battle for the group. 

Dato' Ng has been with F&N for 18 years and was previously CEO of F&N Holdings Berhad in Malaysia. Huang worked in F&N's joint venture Asia Pacific Breweries, which was taken over by Heineken this year, and was most recently deputy CEO of F&N's food & beverage division.
