Johnnie Walker maker Diageo has created both roles to demonstrate its “commitment to society and the environment”.

“Across our diverse supply chain I see first-hand the positive impact our operations can have on the communities around them,” said Cutter.

“Whether it is ensuring our sites have leading energy efficient technology, reducing fuel and water consumption or supporting our vast global family of farmers providing grains to our breweries and distilleries, this is a huge and significant role.

“I fervently believe in the significant contribution we can make and our commitment to do so.”
