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.

Alan Clark.
