Cott Corp. has appointed a top pharmaceutical executive to the post of chief information and shared services officer.

The Canada-based group, the world's largest producer of store-brand beverages, today (6 February) named TJ Aruffo in the position.

Aruffo joins Cott from AmerisourceBergin Corporation, one of the world's largest pharmaceutical services companies.

Cott CEO Brent Willis: "Cost-reduction, world-class customer service, manufacturing efficiency and innovation all depend on our ability to maximise technology.
