Interbrew has aimed for continuity in its new line-up of directors heading its UK brewing arm.

A revamped 10-strong team, including new managing director Stewart Gilliland, takes over on April 30.

Many of the board members come from Whitbread Beer Company, which was bought by Interbrew last year.

It includes finance director David Coldwell, who held the same role at the beer company, and Chris Williams, who was planning director and will become strategic planning director.

Andy Palmer's title shifts from business process development and IT director to the similar role of business planning and IT director.

They moved to Interbrew UK at the time of the acquisition along with managing director Miles Templeman.

Mr Templeman is quitting in April to make way for Mr Gilliland, who was his marketing and sales director at Whitbread Beer Company (The Publican Newspaper, March 19).

Other roles include human resources director Peter Radcliffe, who had the same job at Whitbread, and brands director Richard Evans, who was director of customer marketing.

The Belgian government is backing Interbrew's judicial review of Trade and Industry Secretary Stephen Byers' decision to block its takeover of Bass Brewers.

Last week, it was waiting for a date for the hearing, which may not be until much later this year. It wants to be given more time to find a buyer for Bass' UK brewing interests.
