UK - Diageo group pensions and benefits director Steve Mingle is to quit his job in January.
A statement from the company said he was leaving by mutual consent after concluding that his skills and experience can no longer be fully utilised within his current position.
Mingle said: “Working at GrandMet and Diageo has been a fantastic experience and I will be leaving with lots of great memories.”
He added: “We have made tremendous progress in so many areas, but a consequence of this is sometimes that the future challenges don’t seem quite so compelling.”
Mingle – a former Bacon & Woodrow actuary – joined GrandMet in 1996 and helped set up the Diageo Pension Scheme following its merger with Guinness in 1997.
Diageo has already appointed Mingle’s successor but has remained tight-lipped on the new appointee’s identity.
