Joanna Price new Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Heineken

05-06-2023 Joanna Price joins Heineken's Executive Committee, reporting directly to CEO Dolf van den Brink. In her new role as Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, she will oversee government affairs and public policy, sustainable development and global communications.

Joanna Price has more than 20 years of global experience in driving transformative change, including external and internal communications, sustainable development, and government affairs, according to Heineken.

Price was until recently Senior Vice President for Public Affairs, Communications and Sustainability at The Coca-Cola Company. She began her career in marketing at News Corp Australia and AC Nielsen, before joining Kellogg's where she eventually became Director of Nutrition and Consumer Insights. Joanna began her career at Coca-Cola in 2003. She notably led the public affairs and communications department in Shanghai as Group Director before moving to the company's U.S. headquarters, where she became Global Vice President of Communications.

Dolf van den Brink says he is pleased to welcome Joanna Price tomorrow. "She has an excellent track record in corporate affairs, having worked in several countries and regions, building and leading high-performing teams. Joanna has managed complex communications landscapes in China and the U.S. and has played a leading role in responding to high-profile media and political issues. Her business acumen, strong track record of transformation and outstanding corporate affairs experience will be a valuable addition to our company and executive committee."

Stacey Tank has decided to leave Heineken to rejoin her family, having moved back to the United States a year ago due to the illness of one of her children. Her last day with the company will be on August 4. She is thanked for her contribution to the Executive Committee, broad business perspectives, strong judgment, and clear values.

Heineken also announces the separation of the corporate affairs function from the transformation network. Jasper Hamaker, Senior Director of Global Transformation, will now report directly to Dolf van den Brink.
