MacFarlane takes AB Inbev's helm

27 March, 2009

Stuart MacFarlane has been appointed

president of the combined UK and Ireland business of the newly-merged Inbev and Anheuser-Busch.

The appointment follows the acquisition of the US brewer of Budweiser by the Belgian multinational

company last November.

It means David Dryden, vice president and managing director of Anheuser-Busch UK & Ireland, will leave his post at the end of March.

MacFarlane said: "David has been an invaluable contributor to the success of the Budweiser brand, and has exhibited exceptional leadership through the transition

of the business."
