SABMiller has accelerated the planned promotion of chief operating officer Alan Clark to chief executive with immediate effect after executive chairman Graham Mackay was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Graham Mackay has undergone surgery and has embarked on a course of treatment.

Alan Clark was appointed as chief operating officer in July 2012 with a view to succeeding Graham Mackay as chief executive in July 2013 after a transitional period of one year, when it was intended that Graham Mackay would become non-executive chairman. The board will keep Graham Mackay’s position under review pending the outcome of his treatment, and John Manser, deputy chairman, becomes acting chairman for the time being.
