Chief product officer is now the chief supply chain officer.

Keurig Dr Pepper has announced a series of promotions of personnel overseeing its supply chain.

Roger Johnson has been named chief supply chain officer, promoted from chief product officer. Johnson, who joined KDP in 2016, was credited with establishing an operations center in Singapore and with spearheading innovations to KDP brewers, including connected brewers and new BrewID technology. He replaces Tony Milikin, who is leaving the company.

"We are fortunate to have such a strong supply chain bench, with experienced and talented leaders ready to assume expanded roles,” CEO Ozan Dokmecioglu said in a statement. “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.”

KDP announced two other promotions related to its supply chain. Christopher Martin has been promoted from senior vice president for logistics operations to SVP for coffee supply chain. Paul DaRosa has been promoted from SVP for quality, employee health & safety and technical services to SVP, cold beverages supply chain. Both will report to Johnson.
