COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark’s Carlsberg (CARLb.CO) has appointed former Heinz top executive, Christopher Warmoth, to head the brewer’s operations in Asia where it is searching for acquisitions, it said in a statement on Tuesday.

Warmoth over the last 10 years had held various positions in the Asia Pacific and continental and Eastern European regions for Heinz, known primarily for its ketchup, and has also worked for The Coca-Cola Company and Procter & Gamble (PG.N), Carlsberg said.
