Brenneman Joins Burger King As CEO

Burger King has named former PricewaterhouseCoopers chief executive Greg Brenneman CEO, effective Aug. 1. He replaces Brad Blum, who left earlier this month. Most recently, Brenneman, 42, was with a Houston-based private equity firm, TurnWorks. BK, owned by a group composed of Texas Pacific Group, Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, spends about $350 million a year on advertising. MDC’s Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Miami is BK’s lead agency. The client did not comment on how the move might affect its advertising.
