O’Hare will leave Heineken in the late summer after four years with the firm to take up a role with an unnamed US-based multinational later in the year.
Prior to his time at Heineken, O’Hare held the role of chief personnel officer at Pepsico for four years, covering Greater China and Asia Pacific.
He was vice president of HR at Frito Lay for five years, sandwiched between his first spell at Pepsico in the US under a number of HR roles for four years.
Jean-Francois Boxmeer, chairman of the executive board and ceo of Heineken, said O’Hare had been a benefit to the firm.
“In the last four years, Michael has played a major role in accelerating our transition to a more performance driven and people-focused company. Along the way he has evolved our understanding of how the growth of our business is linked to the growth of our people and culture.”
