UK: Marketing director calls time on Britvic tenure
The marketing director at Britvic is standing down after over ten years with the soft drinks company.
Andrew Marsden confirmed earlier this week that he is to leave the firm at the beginning of August. Marsden's position will be filled temporarily by CEO Paul Moody.
"Eighteen months after the successful flotation of Britvic I want to take the opportunity to expand my career outside soft drinks," said Marsden. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, we have achieved much and I am confident the business is very well positioned to achieve its growth potential."
Moody added: "Andrew is Britvic's longest serving director and has been a key figure in the development of our business. He has achieved a great deal and we wish him every success in his future endeavours."
An executive search firm has been retained to draw up a suitable list of candidates for the position, Britvic noted.
