Danish brewer Carlsberg Group has appointed Victor Shevtsov as the new executive vice president for its integrated supply chain (ISC).
Shevtsov will also join the executive committee (ExCom) of the group on 1 July 2021 (today).
In 2015, Shevtsov joined Carlsberg as the vice president for ISC in Asia after a long career in various supply chain roles with PepsiCo.
He has been driving significant improvements in Carlsberg's supply chain organisation and has been part of the regional leadership team.
Since 2020, he has been leading the brewer's global diversity and inclusion council, which aims to create a more inclusive workplace for its 40,000 employees.
CEO of Carlsberg Group, Cees 't Hart, welcomed Shevtsov to his new role and added, "As a highly experienced and inclusive leader, with solid end-to-end supply chain expertise, Victor [Shevtsov] will bring a lot of value to Carlsberg Group."
