Anheuser-Busch has promoted its vice president of corporate labor relations to the newly-vacated role of group vice president and chief legal officer.

The company said that Mark Bobak, who will hold the position until the end of the year before starting up his own firm, resigned yesterday (4 December). Bobak will be succeeded by Gary Rutledge who will lead A-B's legal, government affairs and labour relations areas.

A-B president and CEO August Busch IV said: "In leading our legal department through many complex and challenging issues, Mark has done an outstanding job of advancing and protecting the interests of the company. He has been a valuable asset to the company and our industry, but we respect Mark's decision, at this point in his career, to become his own boss."

Bobak's new business will help companies and law firms address challenges in the legal, political, labour, communications and crisis management areas, the company said.

"I would like to thank August Busch III, August Busch IV, and the board of directors for providing me with the opportunity and privilege to work at A-B. I look forward to continuing to assist A-B and sharing my experience and knowledge with others who face significant challenges," added Bobak.

Rutledge, who has been with the company since 1997, will also take Bobak's place on the strategy committee.
