May 2, 2018

Diageo has made several changes to its North American leadership team, appointing Claudia Schubert—currently general manager, Diageo Continental Europe and Russia—to the role of president, U.S. Spirits & Canada. She replaces Tom Looney, who has announced plans to retire. Concurrently, Ed Pilkington has been named Diageo North America’s chief marketing and innovation officer. A 24-year Diageo veteran, Pilkington most recently served as chief marketing officer, Diageo Europe. He succeeds James Thompson, who is departing the company. Both appointments will go into effect over the summer, reporting directly to Diageo North America president Deirdre Mahlan. —Christina Jelski
