JAMIE Wilson, the chief financial officer of SABMiller, has resigned from the South African beverage giant for personal reasons, the company said yesterday.
Wilson steps down from the board with immediate effect and will leave the group officially at the end of the financial year on 31 March.
“I am saddened by Jamie’s departure,” said chief executive Alan Clark. “He has been a huge support to me over many years, first in Europe and then over the past several years as CFO. His contributions to the development of our strategy, the delivery of our business capability programme, the building of our new business efficiency programme, and the strengthening of the finance functions will be a lasting legacy.”
Domenic De Lorenzo, SABMiller’s director of group strategy and a member of the group’s executive committee, will become CFO with immediate effect. De Lorenzo took control of group strategy last year alongside his previous responsibilities as director of corporate finance and development. He’s a chartered accountant by training, and has been involved the company’s financial strategy since his appointment to the executive committee in 2011.
