SABMiller has revealed changes to its senior management team

SABMiller has confirmed a fresh raft of management changes, with its corporate affairs director leaving the group and its CFO taking over investor relations duties. 

In a statement today, the London-headquartered group said that current CFO Jamie Wilson will take overall responsibility for investor relations. Current head of investor relations, Gary Leibowitz, will now report to Wilson within the firm's finance department.  

Catherine May, the company's corporate affairs director for the past two years, will leave the group at the end of the month. Her role will be taken up by SABMiller's general counsel, John Davidson.  

Alan Clark, SABMiller's CEO, said: “This further realignment, following the combination of South Africa and Africa into a single region earlier this year, is consistent with my desire to focus key responsibilities in a smaller and more effective executive group.”

On May's departure, he added: “I am very grateful for her (May's) contribution to the group.”

In other changes, group director of corporate finance and development, Domenic De Lorenzo, will take responsibility for group strategy. 

Stephen Shapiro, currently deputy company secretary and deputy general counsel, will be appointed as company secretary from 1 November, retaining his deputy general counsel role.
