Speaking following the announcement, Mr. Walcott expressed his excitement at the opportunity and outlined his plans for his expanded role. “My main goal is to increase our market share in the beer category but I also want to focus on our juice and milk brands, implementing effective and creative strategies to help us retain and increase the market share in those areas. We want to continue to bring people together to enjoy all of our brands.”
Also commenting on the promotion was Mr. Jose Infante, Country Manager, BHL, who said, “Charles has been a leader in a team which has demonstrated remarkable results in a challenging economic environment.
