SABMiller plc - change in Board responsibilities
SABMiller plc re-appoints John Manser as acting Chairman
SABMiller plc announces with regret that in light of a deterioration in the health of Chairman Graham Mackay the Board has re-appointed Deputy Chairman John Manser as acting Chairman with effect from 14 November 2013.
Mr Manser was acting Chairman for five months earlier this year, when Mr Mackay took medical leave of absence to focus on his treatment following surgery for a brain tumour in April 2013. Mr Mackay recovered sufficiently to return to his role as non-executive Chairman in September 2013, but following a recent sudden worsening of his condition, the Board has agreed to his request for a further leave of absence.
The board will continue to keep the position under review.
General Counsel and Group Company Secretary
