Molson Coors combined its European offices in January

Molson Coors has appointed a former Vodaphone director to lead its human resources team in Europe.

Vicky Cookson, who spent 13 years at the UK telecoms group, will start as chief people officer for Molson Coors on 1 September, the brewer said this week. Cookson will be based out of the Prague headquarters of Molson Coors Europe, which was formed in January after the acquisition of Staropramen producer StarBev last year.

Before leaving Vodaphone, Cookson was HR director for the company's Romanian unit. She also served as interim HR director for Vodafone Hungary.
