(Alliance News) - Diageo PLC on Thursday said it has named Ireena Vittal as a non-executive director, with effect Friday.

Vittal is currently a non-executive at catering firm Compass Group PLC.

She brings a wealth of fast-moving consumer goods experience from her executive consulting career, together with her broad experience as a non-executive director. Ireena's knowledge of emerging markets, including her particular expertise in India, will be of great benefit and I am very much looking forward to her contribution to the board," Chair Javier Ferran said.
