Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. (KDP) is restructuring its supply chain leadership team.

As part of the shuffle, KDP promoted three senior leaders into new roles. 

Chief Product Officer Roger Johnson, who joined KDP in 2016, has been promoted to chief supply chain officer.

He succeeds Tony Milikin, who will step down from his role at the end of October after a year with the business. 

Johnson will report to chief executive Ozan Dokmecioglu, effective Oct. 17. 

The supply chain executive and general manager brings more than 20 years of experience to the role across consumer durables, electronics, food and beverage and automotive industries. 

Christopher Martin, who joined KDP in 2014 and most recently served as SVP, logistics operations, has been promoted to SVP, coffee supply chain; and Paul DaRosa, who joined the company in 2018 and was most recently SVP, quality, employee health and safety and technical services, has been promoted to SVP, cold beverages supply chain. 

Martin and DaRosa will report to Johnson.

"We are fortunate to have such a strong supply chain bench, with experienced and talented leaders ready to assume expanded roles. I have worked with Roger for almost seven years, and I am confident that his strong leadership and deep experience in global supply chains will position him well, as we strengthen our focus on growth and operational excellence. I also want to thank Tony for his supply chain leadership over the past year and wish him all the best,” Dokmecioglu said in a statement.
