August Busch IV’s tenure on the Anheuser-Busch InBev board of directors is about to end.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the former CEO of Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. will leave the board after the company’s annual shareholders meeting on April 26. The newspaper says the move is unrelated to the negative publicity surrounding Busch since the death of his girlfriend from a drug overdose late last year.
Busch’s board seat was always considered a courtesy after Anheuser-Busch was sold to InBev in 2008, as InBev’s board went to 13 seats from 12 previously. It will now revert to 12. Busch’s term had always been scheduled to end next month, the newspaper said.
