Houlton steps down at Carlsberg


THE sales director of Carlsberg UK is to step down after 14 years with the company.

Chris Houlton’s time at Carlsberg will come to a conclusion on September 28 at which point CEO Benet Slay will oversee the sales team until a replacement can be found.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working for Carlsberg UK and feel we have made significant progress in what is a highly competitive UK market,” said Houlton.
“We have transformed our on-trade and distribution business in recent years and have grown significant share and profit in all our trade channels.
“Our customer relationships are second to none and I will leave this winning business with some great memories.”
Slay thanked Houlton for making a “significant contribution” to the firm and said an internal and external review was under way to find a suitable replacement.
