Clark leaving MillerCoors
Published June 29, 2009
Dockery Clark, MillerCoors director of sports and entertainment marketing, is leaving after nearly four years with the company, effective July 15.
A MillerCoors internal e-mail sent last Tuesday “on behalf of” CMO Andy England said Clark was leaving to relocate to her hometown of Charlotte.
“From the numerous local and national alliances she has negotiated in the past four years to landmark deals like our partnership with the Dallas Cowboys, Dockery has created significant and lasting value for our business,” the e-mail read.
In an interview, Clark said she was leaving to find a job that would offer more hands-on sports marketing activity.
“I’ve learned a lot and loved working in consumer package goods,” she said. “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.”
Jackie Woodward, vice president of marketing services, will assume Clark’s responsibilities while MillerCoors looks for a replacement.
Clark started at Miller Brewing in 2005. She spent 11 years with Bank of America before leaving in 2004.
