Francisco Nogueira has been appointed as the new managing director for Nespresso with responsibility for operations in the UK and Ireland.
"Mr Nogueira is the perfect person to lead the Nespresso business in the UK and Ireland and to continue driving growth in one of the world's largest coffee drinking markets," said Jean-Marc Duvoisin, chief executive officer at Nestlé Nespresso SA.
"During his time in his previous role as commercial director in Portugal, Mr Nogueira's leadership helped to drive our business forward, despite tough market conditions, by focusing on innovation and by responding to evolving consumer tastes," he added.
Nogueira said: "Nespresso is a fantastic company to be a part of and I'm honoured to have been chosen to lead its UK and Ireland operations. The appetite for a global single-serve coffee market continues to grow and this is a very exciting time to be part of the market-leading firm within that sector."
