Carlsberg UK has appointed Isaac Sheps as its new CEO.

Sheps replaces Doug Clydesdale, who is leaving the group after 11 years, three of which he served as the UK CEO.

Until now Sheps, 59, has been heading up the development of Carlsberg South East Europe, the umbrella organisation of Carlsberg's activities in Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro.

Together with his new position in the UK, Sheps will keep his job at Carlsberg South East Europe until the end of this year.

President & CEO of the Carlsberg Group, Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen, said: "Carlsberg UK has clearly demonstrated good improvements and I would like to thank Doug Clydesdale for his significant contribution over the years.

"He leaves the business with our best wishes for the future. We are now entering a new phase of development and the ambition is to bring the UK's earnings closer in line with Carlsberg's targets for Western Europe.

"Given his track record at Carlsberg South East Europe based on his leadership skills, his readiness to challenge status quo and his ability to lead from the front, we are convinced that Isaac Sheps is the right man to take Carlsberg UK to the next level."
