SABMiller man to head up Distell

FORMER SABMiller executive Richard Rushton will succeed long serving Jan Scannell as MD of Distell next month.

Distell chairman David Nurek said Rushton was a strong leader with a passion and deep understanding of the liquor industry in Southern Africa, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Rushton enjoyed senior leadership roles with SABMiller in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Nurek said: “After a thorough selection process, the board of directors is delighted that Richard will lead Distell as the company continues to expand its global footprint through exploring new markets, and consolidates its position as Africa’s leading producer and marketer of spirits, fine wines, ciders and ready-to-drinks.”
