She joined SABMiller in 2003 as corporate affairs director and was part of the executive team that built the business into a top five FTSE company. Before this, she held a number of senior roles in UK companies, including that of director of corporate affairs for Railtrack Group and Scottish Power. Commenting on the appointments, Gerald Corbett, chairman, said: “We are delighted to welcome Euan and Sue to the board. Euan brings strong retail sector knowledge and general management and marketing experience. Sue has headed up corporate affairs at a number of large British companies and her latter experience running SABMiller Europe places her in a unique position to contribute to the development of Britvic. They are both strong additions to the Britvic Board as we look to continue to develop our business in the UK and internationally. I would also like to pay tribute to Bob Ivell. Bob has been our senior independent director since we floated over ten years ago and has chaired our Remuneration Committee for the last eight years. We will miss his wise counsel and wish him well in the future.”
