JOHN Dunsmore (above), the highly rated boss of drinks firm C&C, who announced his departure last week, could join a rival six months after leaving.

It has emerged that Dunsmore has a non-compete clause preventing him from joining a rival for just six months.

Sources indicated that the remarkably short non-compete clause was inserted so that C&C would not have to cough up a major pay-off if the executive hadn't worked out. C&C paid former boss Maurice Pratt €1.73m "compensation for loss of office".

It has been suggested that Dunsmore could be a target for Diageo as it seeks to build up a cider business.
