Lion Group has appointed Sam Fischer as its new CEO. Fischer joins Lion from Diageo where he served as president of Asia Pacific and global travel and a member of the global Diageo executive committee.

Fischer will join Lion Group from July this year when current CEO Stuart Irvine steps down after serving nine years in the role.

Prior to joining Diageo, Fischer spent 15 years with Colgate-Palmolive in Australia and moved to senior positions working across Europe and Asian markets. He is also a non-executive director with Burberry Group. 

Lion chairman Sir Rod Eddington welcomed Fischer to the board and noted he brings over 30 years of experience to the company. 

“Sam joins Lion at a pivotal time, as the industry continues to navigate the impacts of the pandemic and Lion delivers a new mid-term plan to return to sustainable growth. His drive for performance and proven ability to lead with purpose and conviction will be invaluable as Lion enters this next chapter,” said Sir Rod.

“I’m looking forward to connecting with Lion’s customers and partners across markets and working with Lion’s people on this next chapter,” said Fischer.
