Alan Feldman, president of the McDonald's Northeast division was named president of McDonald's USA. Mr. Feldman, a veteran of Pizza Hut, where he was senior VP-business strategy and chief financial officer, joined McDonald's in 1994 as a zone manager and corporate VP. Also, James Cantalupo, president-CEO of McDonald's International, was promoted to vice-chairman, McDonald's Corp., and chairman-CEO of McDonald's International.
McDonald's said it is still searching for a top U.S. marketing executive to succeed Senior VP-Marketing Brad Ball, who resigned last month to join Warner Bros. Studios as president-marketing.
