Paul Walsh, who was appointed to the role of CEO in 2000, now holds 654,614 shares in the group. The shares were traded in at 1,935.00p a time, earning him �1.45m before tax. The sale comes just a few weeks after Diageo unveiled its results for the final six months of 2012. The company, whose brands include Guinness, Smirnoff and Johnnie, reported a 9.0% organic operating profit growth for the half year ended December 31st. Earnings per share for pre-exceptional items rose 9.0% to 60.9p per share. Organic net sales growth climbed 5.0% with 1.0% organic volume growth. The group reported a 110 basis points of organic operating margin expansion. Walsh said the results were driven by the strong performance of the company's alcoholic spirits in the US.
