Walsh.jpegAugust 29, 2013: Diageo announced early last week that former CEO Paul Walsh (pictured, left) has been appointed as an additional director of United Spirits Limited along with Vikram Singh Mehta, who joins as an independent director of the company.

This came after Vijay Mallya and several other high profile directors, such as chief executive John Beard and director Ayani Nedungadi resigned from the board with immediate effect.
Diageo has been involved in a deal to buy United Spirits from Mallya for several years. Its latest offer in May 2013 to buy a 26% stake in USL was turned down by shareholders.
