Carlton CMO to step down for ‘health and personal reasons’

PodCarlton and United Breweries (CUB) has confirmed that chief marketing officer Peter McLoughlin will leave the business on September 1 for health and personal reasons.

Richard Oppy, general manager of Victoria Bitter and Crown Lager, will oversee day to day management of the division while a replacement is found.

McLoughlin,  affectionately known as ‘Pod’, has been a long-standing member of the broader SABMiller business and had spells in South Africa and Latin America.

CUB chief operations manager Mike Walsh said: “We of course support Pod’s decision and wish he and his family well and hope he has a speedy recovery.”

His energy, positive approach, business acumen and loyalty will be “sorely missed”, he added.

McLoughlin moved into the CMO role in April 2013.
