A-B President David Peacock Quits
Anheuser-Busch President David Peacock, who has led the St. Louis-based brewer’s U.S. operations since 2008, has resigned from the company effective immediately.
Peacock is leaving the company to spend more time with his family and pursue other business interests, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Formerly A-B’s vice president of marketing, Peacock was named president in 2008 after Belgium-based InBev acquired the company. He is expected to continue to serve in an advisory role, the Post-Dispatch reported.
A-B Zone President North America Luiz Edmond is assuming leadership of the brewery’s U.S. operations. “In his leadership roles over the past three years, Dave has been instrumental in helping us transform our business,” Edmond’s said in an e-mail obtained by the P-D. “His strategic insights, his expertise in the U.S. market and his role representing our company with many constituents helped us successfully complete one of the largest combinations in American business, emerging as a new, stronger company while preserving Anheuser-Busch’s enduring legacy and earning the highest U.S. corporate reputation scores in the company’s history.”
Paul Chibe, A-B’s VP of marketing, and David Almeida, VP of finance, will report to Edmond and join the zone management committee.
