Anheuser-Busch InBev SA said Thursday that Chief Executive Officer Carlos Brito will step down from his role and that Michel Doukeris will succeed him, effective July 1.

Mr. Doukeris has headed the group's North American operations since January 2018, having joined the company in 1996. He has held several commercial operations roles in Latin America, led its operations in China and Asia Pacific for seven years and moved to the U.S. in 2016.

Mr. Brito will step down after 15 years as CEO and 32 years with the company, overseeing the integration of U.S. brewer Anheuser-Busch with the Belgian-Brazilian conglomerate InBev and more recently the 2016 takeover of rival SABMiller.
