Commonwealth Brewery and the Burns House Group of Companies has announced the resignation of its managing director, Nico Pinotsis, for personal reasons.
In a release, the company said Pinotsis' departure will take effect September 15, 2014.
"In his current role, Pinotsis spearheaded a modernization program within the companies' commercial organization, played a critical role in CBL-BHG integration to the local stock exchange while also ensuring close collaboration with CBL-BHG shareholders and government stakeholders. His wealth of international experience contributed to reinforcing Heineken's position not only in The Bahamas but also in the entire Caribbean," said the company.
As Pinotsis' successor, Hans Neven has been appointed managing director of CBL-BHG effective September 15, 2014. In his role Neven will focus on further strengthening the market leadership position of CBL-BHG and building upon the momentum of the company's highly engaged and focused organization.
A Belgian national born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Neven joined Heineken in 2000. Before The Bahamas, Neven served as general manager at SARL Tango, Algeria (Heineken Algeria) since 2008.
"Neven led an impressive turnaround in our newly acquired operations, creating a winning team which delivered strong and sustainable year over year topline and market share growth, resulting in impressive financial results," added the company.
