Grupo Lala names new CEO

Grupo Lala, a Mexican company focused on the industry of healthy and nutritious food, announces that Mauricio Leyva Arboleda will assume the general management of the company as of 1 September to resume its growth and reactivate its profitability, so Scot Rank will leave the position of CEO on 31 August 2018, according to the company.

“The appointment of Mauricio Leyva confirms the confidence we have in the beginning of a next chapter that will allow us to capitalise on the investments we have been making in recent years, resume growth and reactivate Lala’s profitability. Mauricio is a leader with vast experience in consolidating and profitably growing businesses,” says Eduardo Tricio.

Leyva worked for more than 13 years at AB InBev, was president of the Middle Americas Zone and CEO of Grupo Modelo until the end of August this year. He was instrumental in the successful integration of SABMiller and the expansion of the “Corona” beer brand internationally with constant double-digit growth. He has more than 25 years of experience managing global consumer, commercial and communications companies in geographies as diverse as Europe, the US, Africa, Central America and South America, including his native Colombia.

“On behalf of Grupo Lala’s board of directors, I thank Scot for his contributions to our company, which marked the beginning of our global expansion with new operational capabilities, always showing great leadership that earned him the recognition of both his team and the entire organisation,” says Tricio.
