Coca-Cola Enterprises has appointed John R. Parker, Jr. to the position of senior vice president, general counsel, with immediate effect.

Parker, who succeeds John J. Culhane, previously served as senior vice president, strategic initiatives for CCE.

"John Parker is a seasoned leader with a proven track record," said John F. Brock, chairman and chief executive officer. "His legal experience and knowledge of our operations, as well as the complexities our business and system face, make him the ideal candidate for the role of general counsel."

With 21-years experience in the Coca-Cola system, in his most recent position, Parker oversaw the implementation of key business transformation initiatives and the development of the group's global operating framework, the company said.

Prior to that, Parker served as vice president and general manager of CCE's West Central Region. From 1999 to 2004, he served as senior vice president, general counsel for CCE.
