Beer giant, Foster’s, has appointed Andy Gibson to the role of chief marketing officer.
Gibson joins Foster’s after 12 years with UK-based alcoholic beverage company, Diageo, where he held various senior management and marketing roles in Europe, North and Latin America, Asia Pacific and Australia. Most recently, he was general manager of Diageo’s Germany, Austria and Switzerland operations.
“Andy’s appointment adds to the depth and experience of our senior management team and reaffirms our commitment to investing in the iconic brands that will drive the growth of the business”, Foster’s Chief Executive Officer John Pollaers said.
The role of chief marketing officer at Foster’s has been vacant for almost a year, according to AdNews.
Gibson replaces Peter Sinclair who was promoted within the company last August to head up marketing and commercial development for the African and Eastern business, relocating to Dubai.
Gibson will begin his new role in November 2011.
