As lead lawyer for SABMiller Europe, Martin ?ourek will direct the law departments in 11 European countries and will report to James Wilson, CFO of SABMiller for Europe.

At the same time, he remains a member of the supervisory board of Pilsner Urquell.
Martin ?ourek comes from Plze? and graduated from the University of West Bohemia Law Academy in Plze?. He is married and has two children. He speaks English, German and Russian. He likes to devote his free time to family, golf and football, and among his interests are astrology and, of course, pilsner beer.
