ABInBevBDLive reports that Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) on Thursday announced details of the 17-person top management team that will run the post-merger entity and it emerged that it will be clearing out all the top SABMiller executives.  

Analysts said the top team had to be dominated by AB InBev executives to ensure the AB InBev culture took a firm hold, but they were surprised by the exclusion of SABMiller’s top African executive, Mark Bowman.  It is unclear whether Bowman, who joined SAB in 1993 and was appointed MD of SABMiller Africa in 2007, chose to leave or was not invited to stay.  The only SABMiller executive appointed to the top-17 team is Mauricio Leyva, who is MD of SABMiller SA.  Jabu Mabuza, Business Unity SA chairman, who has had an association with SABMiller since the 1990s, has been appointed chairman of the Africa board.
