Cott Corp. has appointed a new CFO. The store-brand soft drinks producer said yesterday (25 July) that Clyde Preslar will assume the position from 29 August.

Preslar replaces Raymond Silcock, who resigned in late April.

He will take over from acting chief financial officer, Tina Dell'Aquila, the company's vice-president and controller.

Preslar joins Cott from US-based Lance Inc., the branded and private-label snack foods maker, where he held the position of CFO.
