Coca-Cola Enterprises has shuffled its board of directors. In a statement released yesterday, the company has confirmed that John R. Alm, currently president and chief operating officer, has been elected president and chief executive officer by the board.

As executive chairman, Kline will continue to have management responsibility of certain corporate functions, and he and Alm will remain partners in developing the long-term strategic business plans for the Company. "Lowry and I continue to take a hard look at improving our operational approach and our entire business to meet the changing needs of our customers and consumers," said Alm.
