Heineken HR chief departs12th June, 2013 by Rupert Millar
Michael O’Hare, current head of human resources at Heineken, is to quit the company and return to the US this summer.
Jean-François van Boxmeer, CEO of the Dutch brewer, announced: “This has been a difficult decision for Michael. However, personal considerations have led Michael and the family to conclude it is right for them to return to the US.
“In the last four years, Michael has played a major role in accelerating our transition to a more performance-driven and people-focused company.
“Along the way, he has evolved our understanding of how the growth of our business is linked to the growth of our people and our culture. We have all benefited from his professional, collaborative approach and it has been a pleasure to work with him.”
Heineken is currently in the process of choosing a replacement.
