Heineken is poised to appoint the chief operating officer for Unilever to its supervisory board as the brewer continues to revamp its leadership team.
With recent senior changes including a new chief commercial officer as well as switches of leadership in Asia and Europe, the brewer will propose the appointment of Nitin Paranjpe at its AGM next year. If approved, Paranjpe would sit alongside Jean-Marc Huët, Unilever’s former CFO and current chair of Heineken’s supervisory board.
A 33-year Unilever veteran, Indian national Paranjpe became group COO in May last year. He will replace Moet Hennessy’s former CEO, Christophe Navarre, who has sat on Heineken’s board since 2009. Navarre stepped down at Moet Hennessy three years ago.
“Given Nitin’s … extensive global experience at Unilever, particularly in Asia, he will add valuable FMCG experience to our supervisory board,” said Huët. “Nitin’s consumer and customer-centric insights will be highly valuable to Heineken, as the company embarks on its next growth phase in which it aims to increase adaptability in a dynamic environment.
“His experience in mature and emerging markets and Asian background will also further strengthen the diversity within our supervisory board.”
Paranjpe’s initial term, which is scheduled to commence after Heineken’s AGM in April next year, will be for four years.
