Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Co has announced a replacement for its CEO who is set to retire later this year.

Dimitris Lois will succeed Doros Constantinou in the third quarter of 2011, the Greek bottler said today (17 March). Lois has been with the firm since March 2007, and was appointed COO in 2009. Prior to joining Coca-Cola Hellenic, he held various senior management positions with Frigoglass for ten years, becoming managing director in 2003.

Constantinou joined the firm as managing director in August 2003 following the resignation of Irial Finan.

"As I move to the next phase of my life, I am pleased that we have a solid succession plan in place," said Constantinou. "I will continue to work alongside Dimitris and our senior leadership team over the next few months to ensure a smooth transition."
