MILWAUKEE - Molson Coors Chief Financial Officer Gavin Hattersley has been appointed interim chief executive officer of MillerCoors to lead the business when current CEO Tom Long retires June 30.

Hattersley, 52, is the former CFO of MillerCoors. He will serve as interim CEO for up to six months until the board completes its search for a permanent successor, according to Thursday’s announcement.

“Gavin is an outstanding and trusted leader with ideal qualifications for the role. He has extensive beer industry knowledge and experience in the U.S. and on the global stage. His unique experience of having held top leadership positions with both parent companies and MillerCoors makes him the right choice to take the business forward with integrity and a strong sense of purpose,” said Pete Coors, chairman of MillerCoors and Molson Coors, in a statement.

Hattersley will continue as CFO of Molson Coors while serving as interim head of the US business.
