LONDON , June 5, 2023 (press release) –

Diageo Board appoints Debra Crew Interim CEO. Sir Ivan Menezes in hospital receiving treatment for medical conditions including a stomach ulcer.

Sir Ivan Menezes is currently in hospital receiving treatment for medical conditions including a stomach ulcer. Over the weekend, we learned that Ivan’s recovery suffered a significant setback due to complications, which followed emergency surgery on the ulcer.

As a result of these developments, the Board of Directors has appointed Debra Crew Interim Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect, ahead of her appointment as Chief Executive Officer and joining the Board as an executive director on 1 July 2023 . As previously announced, Ivan will retire from the Board on 30 June 2023 .

Our thoughts are with our much-loved colleague, Ivan, and his family.

Out of respect for Ivan and his family’s privacy, we will not be commenting further at this time.
