BREAKING NEWS - Antonio Rossetti will be taking early retirement from SAB.

We wish to announce that General Manager Group Accounts On Premise, Antonio Rossetti will be taking early retirement from SAB.

Message from our Chairman, Paul Leishman : “Antonio has not only been an incredible and consistent supporter and friend of CMASA over the past 25 years but he has also been a true friend to myself and many other club employees over his successful career at SAB.

He will leave a great legacy as he takes some time off and considers opportunities to keep him busy … he is way too young to retire. His passion for his brand and his commitment to education and professional development in the club industry will remain with us for a long time. We wish him all the best with wherever life takes him.”

Antonio joined SAB in 1991 as a sales representative in Egoli Region and over the span of his 25 year career with SAB held various management roles in sales, exports, channel and finally in group accounts where he built the current SAB group account capability over the past 18 years.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Antonio Rossetti for the considerable contribution he has made to SAB and to the beer category in South Africa over the past 25 years.

Antonio’s last day in the office will be 31 January 2017.
