Pod McLoughlin steps down as CUB marketing chief
Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) has announced that its CMO, Peter ‘Pod’ McLoughlin will be stepping down from his role for health and personal reasons.
McLoughlin has been a long standing executive within the broader SABMiller business and has worked in several markets in South Africa, Latin America and Australia.
CUB’s chief operations officer Mike Walsh said McLoughlin’s energy, positive approach, broad business acumen and loyalty will be among many attributes that will be sorely missed by all at CUB: “We of course support Pod’s decision and wish he and his family well and hope he has a speedy recovery.”
Richard Oppy, general manager of VB and Crown Lager, will take on day-to-day management of the marketing team while the recruitment process for the CMO role is conducted.
