January 18, 2005
Maytag Corp. announced today that two senior executives, both working in the office of the president, will leave the company, effective Jan. 31, 2005. William L. Beer, executive vice president and a 31-year veteran of Maytag, will conclude his career with the company to pursue personal and other professional opportunities. Thomas A. Briaticok, executive vice president, will retire after a 30-year career with the company.
Both executives were named to the post of executive vice president in June 2004 during the company's "One Company" restructuring initiative. This effort integrated the systems, facilities, and personnel from within Maytag Appliances, Hoover, and Maytag's corporate headquarters. These positions will be eliminated from the new structure going forward.
