Mars, Google executives set to join Heineken's board

Heineken has lined up two additions to its board, with a former chairman of Mars and a marketing executive at Google poised to become directors.

Pamela Mars-Wright and Yonca Brunini will be proposed as new board members at next month's AGM, the brewer said earlier today. If approved, the move would bring the number of Heineken board members to 11.

Mars-Wright,55, is a fourth-generation member of the Mars family, and sits on the board of Mars Inc. She served as chairman of the company between 2004 and 2008. Brunini, 46, is VP of marketing for EMEA at Google, having joined the company from Yahoo in 2006. Prior to Yahoo, she spent almost ten years in marketing roles at Unilever.

Heineken's AGM is scheduled for 21 April.
