Anheuser-Busch InBev said it will transition current North America zone president, Luiz Edmond, into a global role as Chief Sales Officer. Taking over for Edmond will be current Latin America zone president, Jo├úo Castro Neves.
Edmond has held his current position as North American president since November, 2008, when InBev acquired Saint Louis, Mo.-based Anheuser-Busch for $52 billion. Edmond began his career in the beer business with Brahma, which later became Ambev, in 1990.
Bernaro Pinto Paiva, A-B InBev’s current chief sales officer, will take over for Neves as zone president Latin America, a position he has held since 2009.
