SABMiller plc - Change to composition of board committees
SABMiller plc announces board committee changes
SABMiller plc announces that the board of directors has granted medical leave of absence to its Chairman, Graham Mackay, to allow him to focus on his continuing treatment following his surgery for a brain tumour in April 2013.
John Manser, Deputy Chairman, will continue as acting Chairman for the time being. The board will keep the position under review as Mr Mackay's treatment progresses, and an appropriate announcement about the future will be made as soon as any definitive decisions have been taken.
In light of John Manser's increased time commitments and responsibilities as acting Chairman, Mr Manser stood down as chairman of the audit committee on 5 June 2013, a year earlier than originally planned, and retired from the audit and remuneration committees. Mr Mark Armour has succeeded Mr Manser as chairman of the audit committee.
