LONDON (AP) — SABMiller, the world's second-largest brewer, says it has made Alan Clark its chief executive three months earlier than planned because the previous chief, Graham Mackay, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Clark, who has been chief operating officer at the brewer since 2012, was due to succeed Mackay in July after a transitional period. SABMiller said Tuesday the promotion will now take immediate effect.
The company, the brewer of 200 beer brands including Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Miller Genuine Draft and Grolsch, said its board would keep Mackay's position as nonexecutive chairman under review, pending the outcome of his treatment.
Clark, 53, joined the company in 1990 and has since held several senior positions in the group.
