Formerly chairman and CEO of Northwest Airlines, Mr. Dasburg replaces Colin Storm, who has been acting CEO at Burger King since August 2000 after Dennis Malamatinas resigned.

Chosen for his combined prior hospitality and fast food experience and public company stewardship, Mr. Dasburg will pilot the partial IPO and eventual separation of Burger King from Diageo, according to Rob Doughty, VP-public relations and communications of Burger King.
