The move will see three executives trade jobs

Anheuser-Busch InBev has appointed a new AmBev head in a shake-up that will see three executives trade jobs.

The Budweiser and Stella Artois owner said today that Bernardo Pinto Paiva, currently A-B InBev’s chief sales officer, will replace João Castro Neves as the CEO of Brazil-based AmBev. Pinto Paiva will also take over Castro Neves's role as Zone President for Latin America North. 

At the same time, Castro Neves will become A-B InBev's Zone President North America, replacing Luiz Fernando Edmond, who will take over as chief sales officer.

Pinto Paiva has extensive experience with AmBev, joining the Latin American beer giant in 1991. He was appointed A-B InBev's Zone President for North America in January 2008 and Zone President for Latin America South in January 2009. 

The changes will take effect from the start of next year.

Pinto Paiva moved to New York to become chief sales officer in July 2011.
