The Coca-Cola Co. has announced the promotion of a new president for its North America operating unit, beginning at the start of next year.
Jennifer Mann, currently a senior vice president and president of Global Ventures, will head North America operations starting on Jan. 1. She will replace Alfredo Rivera, a 38-year Coca-Cola veteran who has held that position since August 2020. Rivera will transition to an advisory role through next March.
Mann has been with Coca-Cola for 25 years, starting as a manager in the customer support division. Her other positions have included chief people officer and chief of staff for CEO James Quincey.
“Jennifer has emerged as a strong business leader during her 25-year career with the company,” Quincey said in a statement. “Her background in operations across the United States and globally makes her a great fit to lead the company’s largest operating unit.”
