SABMiller plc - changes in Board responsibilities
SABMiller plc announces Graham Mackay's resumption of the Chairmanship
SABMiller plc announces that Graham Mackay has resumed his duties as non-executive Chairman with effect from 5 September 2013, following a medical leave of absence granted by the board in May 2013.
John Manser, who has been acting Chairman during Mr Mackay's absence, has resumed his former position as Deputy Chairman and Senior Independent Director.
Commenting on his return, Graham Mackay said:
"The directors are extremely grateful to John Manser for stepping so ably into the breach as acting Chairman during my absence, and I personally have relied hugely on his support and wise counsel during what has been a very difficult few months for my family and me. I am delighted that the transition of the chief executive's management responsibilities to Alan Clark has gone so well, and I look forward to supporting Alan and his executive team as they continue to lead SABMiller to ever greater success."
