Jones Soda has resintalled Jennifer Cue as its chief financial officer on an interim basis.

Cue will take up the post on 12 September and replaces Michael O'Brien, who left the company earlier this month to join a private coffee business, Jones Soda said today (9 September). Cue was previously at Jones Soda between 1995 and 2005, during which time she was CFO, COO and and a board member.

Most recently, Cue has worked as a financial and business consultant, the group said. "As one of the original executive leaders, [Cue] obviously has a deep history and passion for Jones Soda," said Jones CEO William Meissner. "She is absolutely the perfect choice to fill this position as we seek a permanent hire."

Cue said that she is eager help Jones continue its "turnaround". In 2010, the company was almost sold to Reed's, but the deal broke down. Since then, Jones has sought to continue as an independent soft drinks maker. Last month, Jones reported that it reduced net losses for its first-half by 5%, to $3.5m.
