AG Barr Recruits New Finance Boss

(Alliance News Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LONDON (Alliance News) - Scotland's AG Barr PLC Thursday said it has recruited a new finance boss in the form of Diageo PLC's current global supply operations Finance Director, Stuart Lorimer.

In a statement, AG Barr, famous for producing the fizzy, orange coloured soft drink Irn-Bru, said that Lorimer will join the company once he has completed a handover period with Diageo.

Lorimer's appointment comes after AG Barr in April said that Alex Short is to leave the job at the end of August after six years. Short is joining the Edrington Group as Group Finance Director.

AG Barr shares were Thursday quoted up 1.2% at 656.00 pence.
