SAB Miller hires Knight to CSR position

Brewing giant SAB Miller has centralised its CSR operations in London following the listing of the company on the city’s stock exchange two years ago.

It has poached Kingfisher head of social responsibility Dr Alan Knight to head corporate accountability within the corporate affairs department, led by director of corporate affairs Sue Clark.

Knight arrives at SAB Miller in December to fill the gap left by the departure of the Johannesburg-based head of corporate accountability Alison Ramsden, who is now associate director of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Sustainable Business Unit in South Africa.

Knight, who will head the three-strong corporate accountability team from London, has been on the UK sustainable development commission since 2000 and is co-chair of UK Sustainable Consumption Roundtable, a think-tank for the Prime Minister’s office.

Previous to Kingfisher, Knight was head of sustainability at subsidiary B&Q. Kingfisher said it had not yet found a replacement for Knight.
