Clark Leaving MillerCoors In July
In this week's SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, Terry Lefton reports MillerCoors Dir of Sports & Entertainment Marketing DOCKERY CLARK is "leaving after nearly four years with the company, effective July 15." MillerCoors CMO ANDY ENGLAND said that Clark is "leaving to relocate to her hometown of Charlotte." Clark, who joined Miller in '05, said that she is leaving to "find a job that would offer more hands-on sports marketing activity." Clark: "I've learned a lot and loved working in consumer package goods. We've been more about planning and administration. Ideally, I want to be more involved in sports marketing and less about how things should be organized." MillerCoors VP/Marketing Services JACKIE WOODWARD will assume Clark's responsibilities while the company searches for a replacement (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 6/29 issue).
