Burger King Corp. VP-Product Marketing Derek Correia, 32, is leaving the No. 2 burger chain to join Renaissance Cruises as senior VP-marketing. Mr. Correia joined Diageo-owned Burger King in September 1999 as director-product marketing, from Pizza Hut, and was promoted to his current post in June. He was responsible for new product launches and ongoing marketing at the troubled fast-feeder. A spokeswoman said it was too early to discuss plans for his successor.
