DB Breweries appointed three new talented members to its management team this week.

Lauren Mentjox - Corporate Affairs Director
Mentjox joins DB from Lime where she was the Director of Government Relations and Public Affairs for NZ and Australia. She also has experience in a similar field at Frucor Suntory. In her role, she will be responsible for steering the Corporate Affairs agenda across government relations and communications and driving DB's ambitious sustainability targets, including being carbon neutral by 2030.

Darron Curphey - Supply Chain Director
Curphey joins DB from Walter & Wild and has previously held similar positions in the FMCG sector at Goodman Fielder, Taura Natural Ingredients, Comfort Group (Sleepyhead), Fonterra and Kraft. In this role, Curphey will drive world-class manufacturing across DB’s four production sites, develop and implement an integrated supply chain plan, and grow a high-performance team.

Hajni Magdo - Digital & Technology Director
Magdo has been promoted from the Digital & Technology Lead at DB to the new position. Her promotion follows a career of over 30 years with Heineken across multiple markets. The new role will see Magdo continue to elevate DB's Digital & Technology agenda and embed it as a cross-functional strategic driver.

“As a management team we have some really exciting goals with our collective focus on creating premium adult beverages, inspiring good times, and continuing on the path to our Net Zero 2030 ambition. I believe an organisation, no matter how well designed, is only as good as its people, so I’m thrilled to have such amazing talent joining the ranks at DB this week. Darron and Lauren are proven experts in their respective fields and we also make the important strategic step to appoint our first Digital and Technology Director / CIO at senior exec level as we accelerate our digital transformation.” Said Matt Wilson, Managing Director of DB Breweries.
