SABMiller has appointed Kristin Wolfe as its new head of alcohol policy. Wolfe, who has been with the company for 16 years, will be responsible for directing group strategy and policy on responsible alcohol consumption. The new appointment comes amid rumours of a possible company takeover of C&C Group, the Irish drinks maker behind Magners cider. C&C Group jumped Eu0.66 (0.44 pence) to Eu12.19 and liquor industry data also showed that demand for C&C Carolans Irish in the US has bounced back.
