Russo has extensive global experience, having worked with British American Tobacco (BAT), Diageo and Procter & Gamble across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas.

"We were conscious of the need to find someone who could bring global experience in digital technologies, business transformation, technology innovation and cost controls," Kruger says.
