Coca-Cola veteran Jennifer Mann has been tapped to succeed Alfredo Rivera as corporate senior vice president and president of the company’s North American operations.
Mann, currently SVP of Global Ventures, will step into the role on Jan. 1, 2023.
Rivera, who has led the unit since August 2020, will remain with Coca-Cola as a senior advisor through to March 2023.
“Alfredo has been a highly valued business partner for me and countless others across our system for nearly four decades,” said James Quincey, chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, in a statement. “I thank Alfredo for his service and wish him all the best.”
In her current role, which she has held since 2019, Mann’s team is responsible for globally scaling acquisitions and brands, including Costa Coffee and Coca-Cola’s investment in Monster Beverage Corp. A new leader for Global Ventures will be named at a later date.
