Changes may have sparked U.S. moves.

Last week's management change by Australia's Foster's Brewing Group may have sparked a realignment within Molson USA, the Roston, VA-based branch of the parent company.

Included in the changes was the surprise departure of Robert Wilson, who served as executive vice president of Molson USA and president of Century Importers. Wilson, an industry veteran, is credited by many industry experts for the recent success of the Foster's brands in the United States. Sales by Century Importers also experienced significant growth during the last year under Wilson's direction, according to industry analysts. Wilson was unavailable for comment.

Other recent changes at Molson USA include the departures of vice president of corporate development, Steven Johnson; brand manager Howard Kominsky; and comptroller, Peter Meade.
