Diageo has announced some changes to its executive committee. After 27 years with the business, Nick Blazquez is to leave Diageo in order to pursue new opportunities and challenges. He will continue as a Diageo nominee non-executive director on the United Spirits Ltd (USL) board until the end of the calendar year but will step down from the Diageo executive committee on 30 June 2016. At that time, John Kennedy, currently President, Europe, Russia and Turkey, and Alberto Gavazzi, currently President, Latin America and Caribbean, will expand their responsibilities. John will partner with Anand Kripalu, CEO of USL, in delivering Diageo’s growth opportunity in India. Diageo will nominate John to replace Nick as Diageo’s senior non-executive director on the USL board. Alberto will take accountability for Diageo’s GTME business and the Global Sales Operational Excellence agenda.

Ivan Menezes, Chief Executive of Diageo, says: “I have valued Nick’s contribution to the development of the strategy, performance, values and culture Diageo has today. During his career he has provided strong leadership across many parts of our business from Great Britain to Africa, Asia Pacific, Russia, Turkey and latterly India. He has played a key role in the development of Diageo’s sustainability agenda as the originator of our Water of Life programme, growing businesses which provide employment and championing local agriculture.
