Carlsberg UK has appointed Isaac Sheps as its new chief executive.

Sheps replaces Doug Clydesdale who leaves after eleven years with the brewer, three as chief executive, and will combine the UK operations with his current role as chief executive of Carlsberg South East Europe.

The brewer said it was "an appropriate time for change in leadership to further maximise earnings in a very challenging market".

Carlsberg Group president and CEO Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen said: "Carlsberg UK has clearly demonstrated good improvements and I would like to thank Doug Clydesdale for his significant contribution over the years.

"He leaves the business with our best wishes for the future. We are now entering a new phase of development and the ambition is to bring the UK's earnings closer in line with Carlsberg's targets for Western Europe.

"Given his track record at Carlsberg South East Europe based on his leadership skills, his readiness to challenge status quo and his ability to lead from the front, we are convinced that Isaac Sheps is the right man to take Carlsberg UK to the next level."
