Anheuser-Busch President David Peacock, who has led the brewery's U.S. operations since 2008, has resigned from the company.  

Employees were notified today of Peacock's resignation, which is effective today. He's leaving to spend more time with his family and pursue other business interests, according to the company.

Peacock was named president of the brewery's U.S. operations in 2008 after Belgium-based InBev acquired the company. Peacock was formerly vice president of marketing at Anheuser-Busch.

Peacock will continue to serve in an advisory role, according to an email Luiz Edmond sent to employees today, which was supplied to the Post-Dispatch by the company. 

Edmond, who is a member of the company's board of directors, will continue in his role as Zone President North America for the brewery and is assuming leadership of the brewery's U.S. operations based in St. Louis.

In the email, Edmond noted Peacock's contributions to Anheuser-Busch. "In his leadership roles over the past three years, Dave has been instrumental in helping us transform our business," Edmond's email states. "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 vice president of marketing, and David Almeida, vice president of finance, will report to Edmond and join the zone management committee.
