Holberry quits Magners

10 April, 2009

Magners GB head John Holberry has resigned, saying recent appointments at parent company C&C Group have left him with less opportunity to develop his career.

Holberry joined Magners GB as managing director in March 2008, after a seven-year stint as Coors' managing director of sales operations.

He said: "I have enjoyed working in C&C and building the Magners GB team over the

past year. However the appointment of the new management team, headed by John Dunsmore, reduces the opportunities for me to develop my career.

"I will be working with John over the coming months to ensure a successful transition and wish him and

the C&C team every success in the future."

Dunsmore, the former chief executive of Scottish & Newcastle, took the helm at C&C in November

and has brought in other members of S&N's senior management team, including Stephen Glancey as chief operating officer and Kenny Neison as strategy director.

He said: "We would like to thank John for his significant contribution

since his appointment. We are delighted that he will work with us to ensure a smooth transition to the new management structure and offer him our best wishes for the future."
