- Daniel Ogong leaves Nile Breweries Limited in cloudy circumstances.
- Nile Breweries in new management style as pressure mounts on staff
You may at this moment be knowing by now that, Marketing guru Daniel Ogong left giant beer company Nile Breweries recently. There are many different reasons fronted in the media for his departure though no official statement was released to that effect on either side.
However, reports reaching our desk indicate Daniel actually left due to work pressure after new management took over Nile Breweries and the marketing man could not ‘cope with the new changes’ introduced by the new bosses.
Insiders say Daniel who was responsible for reviving the fortunes of beer brands like Club, Nile Gold and Castle Lager, was always stressed from the time the changes took effect as Dutch company AB InBev took over from SABMillers which also follows the exit of Grace Nshemeire who also held a similar position in the rival brewery company Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL).
The new style of management and running of day to day affairs by AB InBev is said to be tightly knit compared to the free flowing style SABMillers had where managers enjoyed freedom to run affairs in their own way. These changes are also expected to force many more other staff members out according to observers, with rival UBL the likely beneficiaries.
