In its efforts to bolster its pre-packaged spirits division, Diageo-owned Guinness UDV has promoted Gary Haigh, former marketing director for Guinness Great Britain, to the new post of global director for ready-to-drink (RTD) products.

RTD brands include Smirnoff Ice, Smirnoff Mule, Gordon's Space and Stolly Lemon Ruski.
