Poh Tiong will retire from the post at the end of September, the company said earlier today (10 August). Poh can boast 26 years of service, first with Asia Pacific Breweries (APB), and in the last three years with F&N.

APB is the Singapore-based brewing joint-venture between Fraser & Neave and Heineken.

Pascal de Petrini will replace Poh Tiong with effect from 1 October, the firm said. He will join F&N from Danone Group where he has spent 27 years in a number of roles across Europe and Asia, most recently leading Danone's baby nutrition business.

"We take this opportunity to record our thanks and appreciation to Poh Tiong for his many years of service and sterling contributions to our F&B business," said Fraser & Neave's chairman, Lee Hsien Yang. "We are pleased that Pascal, with his proven track record in food and beverage, international exposure with significant recent stints throughout the region especially in Indonesia, Shanghai and Singapore, has accepted this leadership role to build upon F&N's strengths in food and beverage."
