Peter Margin will retire as Chairman of Asahi Holdings Australia (AHA) following the successful integration of Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) into Asahi Beverages earlier this year.
Mr Margin said, “It has been an immense privilege and an incredibly professionally rewarding experience to see Asahi Beverages’ unparalleled growth and success over the past five years, as well as complete Asahi Beverages’ succession planning.
“The company is exceptionally well positioned to continue on its ambitious plans for growth. The company’s customers, partners and employees are in great hands,” he said.
Roland van Bommel, Acting Chairman of AHA, paid tribute to Margin.
“Peter has been an exceptional leader of AHA. He can be very proud of the company’s strong growth over the past five years. I wish Peter all the best for the future. He leaves the Asahi Beverages business in great shape.”
Mr van Bommel further noted that: “It’s business as usual for Asahi Beverages. The business and its executive team, under the leadership of Group CEO Robert Iervasi, continues to deliver as we have seen with the seamless integration of CUB into the Asahi Beverages family. Asahi Beverages is proud to now have the leading drinks portfolio in Australia.”
A new AHA Board member and Chairman will be announced in due course.
