South Africa: The KWV board has announced that CEO Thys Loubser (pictured) has resigned as company CEO with immediate effect.

Loubser thanked the staff for all their support during the period of his tenure. 

Marcel Golding, Chairman of KWV, thanked Loubser for his contribution to the company and wished him well with his future endeavours.
