Heineken Ireland is reportedly looking for a new managing director after the global drinks giant announced that Maggie Timoney, is set to return to Heineken in the US.
Timoney will take over as chief executive officer in the US from Dutchman Ronald den Elzen on 1 September later this year.
The brewer said it will announce a replacement for Timoney over the coming months, reports the Irish Times.
Veteran of Heineken
Timoney has run Heineken Ireland for the last five years.
She succeeded David Forde in 2013 who was appointed managing director of Heineken's UK operations at the time.
Heineken Ireland has been based in Cork since 1856 and boasts an Irish portfolio which includes Heineken, Beamish, Murphy's, Coors Light, Orchard Thieves, as well as a full range of specialty beers.
Previously Timoney who hails from Ballina, Co.Mayo served as chief people officer at Heineken USA (since 2010), during a period that saw a significant turnaround in its business.
In her prior role as general manager of Heineken Canada (2006-2010), it was previously reported that she drove substantial growth of the brand, resulting in Canada becoming 'one of the brand’s top ten markets in the world'.
