Heineken USA President Andy Thomas has resigned, citing differences with the Dutch parent of the U.S. importer of beer brands such as Heineken Lager, Tecate and Dos Equis. Thomas told the press,
“This decision has been difficult for me… However, it has gradually become apparent that the company and I do not share exactly the same perspectives on the business. We have therefore mutually and amicably concluded that this is the best way forward. I know that Heineken USA will continue to enjoy success and I look forward to starting a new stage in my career.”
Thomas will be replaced as president by Don Blaustein, the company’s current senior VP of sales.
