Beer business Asahi Beverages has appointed on Monday Roland van Bommel as the chairman of Asahi Holdings Australia (AHA).

Van Bommel became the acting chairman of AHA in December 2020 after Peter Margin left the role, originally joined the AHA Board in 2013 and was a former chief executive of William Grant & Sons and Maxxium Worldwide.

“I’m honoured by the opportunity, and energised by the challenge, of leading the AHA Board and ensuring we continue to achieve our ambitious growth targets and provide great jobs for our people” said van Bommel in a statement.

“Under the leadership of group chief executive Robert Iervasi and his executive leadership team we’re in a very strong position.

“The breadth of the Asahi Beverages business, manufacturing footprint and beverages portfolio gives us a great opportunity to deliver extraordinary results for our people, our partners, our customers, consumers and community.”

Iervasi said van Bommel’s understanding of the business, and the broader beverage industry, will help the group to ensure it is positioned well to meet the challenges of the next few years.

Carlton & United Breweries joined Asahi Lifestyle Beverages and Asahi Beverages New Zealand last year.
