On September 26, 2023, Ronald Wall resigned as Chief Financial Officer of Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (the “Company”).

Ms. Dhalla is educated in the United Kingdom as a fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants in 1987.


There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Dhalla and any other persons, pursuant to which she was selected as Interim Chief Financial Officer. Ms. Dhalla has not engaged in any transaction, or any currently proposed transaction, in which the Company was or is to be a participant and the amount involved exceeds $120,000, and in which any related person had or will have a direct or indirect material interest. There are no family relationships between Ms. Dhalla and any director or executive officer of the Company.
