Boo Koo Holdings has appointed two new members to its board of directors.

The Texas-based energy drinks company said yesterday (16 August) that Jim Carreker and Ken Johnsen will join the company's board, while previous board member Victor Schmerbeck has resigned.

Carreker, who previously served as CEO of Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Trammell Crow Company, and Wyndam International, as well as chairman and CEO of Bombay Company, will now chair the audit committee and serve as a member of the compensation committee.

Johnsen, who was founder and CEO of Parago, president, COO and on the board of Metamor Worldwide and spent 22 years at IBM, will chair the compensation committee and serve as a member of the audit committee.

Boo Koo's chairman Charles Jarvie said: "Jim Carreker and Ken Johnsen are significant additions to our board and we are most pleased to have them join us. Their experience and expertise combined with their broad business background will greatly benefit our management team."

Jarvie added: "Vic Schmerbeck's service to Boo Koo's board has been valuable and very much appreciated. The board and the management team are all deeply grateful for Vic's service and contribution."
