Mills joined SABMiller in February

SABMiller has given a permanent post to its director of group communications and reputation after a four-month interim stint.

Christina Mills, who joined SABMiller in February, will continue to oversee media duties and corporate reputation monitoring, the UK-based group said this week. She replaces Nigel Fairbrass, who left the company in February to "pursue other opportunities", a SABMiller spokesperson told just-drinks today (16 July).

Mills previously worked for Rio Tinto in markets including China, India and various African nations, as well as Australia, South Africa, the UK, the US and Japan.

SABMiller this month said it was aiming to halve its carbon footprint at all its global breweries by 2020 as part of new sustainability targets.
