CANADA: Russell Breweries loses another senior figure
The exodus at Russell Breweries has continued with the resignation of company director Perpinder Singh Patrola.
Patrola's stepping down, announced today (30 July), follows the exits from the Canadian craft brewer of CFO Gary Liu this month and president & COO Andrew Harris two weeks earlier. Russell gave no reason for Patrola's resignation, but said it is now looking to fill two vacant board positions.
Patrola, a business lawyer, had served as a director of Russell Breweries since last November, according to Bloomberg's Businessweek, and represented the company on "complex corporate matters".
The company said today it has “identified and held discussions with two potential director candidates”.
Liu resigned as CFO and a director “for personal reasons”, Russell said on 10 July. Harris was confirmed to have left the company for undisclosed reasons on 27 June.
Russell Breweries was not immediately available for comment on Patrola's resignation.
