Heineken Contact, P.O. Box 2010 1000 CA Amsterdam The Netherlands Editorial committee: Marcel Eijck Ton Kroon Peter de Lange Jan Siep Francis Tjaarda Annette Volders Copy: Ruth Kelly-Lugg Following two years introductory training, Mr. Drost became Distritt Sales Manager at Rotterdam and three years later was appointed Regional Sales Manager. In 1975 he attended a five-month course for executive development at the Imede Centre, Lausanne. Returning to Holland in the following year he was appointed Managing Director of the National Brewing Company, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and of the St. Lucia, Windward and Leeward Brewery Ltd. Heineken has a long tradition in the Caribbean and Mr. Drost enjoyed living, working and travelling there. In the past, he told CONTACT, Heineken export had been totally centralised in Amsterdam. Last year, however, export offices had been opened in Singapore and Curacao to establish control closer to these areas of activity. It is envisaged that if the right opportunities arise, the trend will be studied to see if it may be necessary to open other export branches. Apart from export of Heineken, Amstel and distilled products, Mr. Drost said, there were efforts to develop in other areas such as shandy. These activities might possibly be extended by increa sing existing product groups or by introducing other lines. New Heineken Group Director - Export is Mr. J.H. Drost, who joined the company as an Amstel trainee in 1967. He succeeds Mr. P. Snoep who after three and a half years as Export Director has taken up a new position as Group Director - Holland, based at Zoeterwoude.
