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.

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.
