FRANCE: Orangina Schweppes appoints France CEO
Orangina Schweppes will welcome the new head of its French operations in June
Orangina Schweppes has lined up the next CEO for its unit in France, just-drinks has learned.
The company, which was acquired by Suntory Holdings in 2009, will see Thierry Gaillard, president & CEO of Mars Chocolat France, assume the leadership in France. Gaillard will replace Hugues Pietrini, who left last month to join Moët Hennessy as executive VP of distribution.
No one was immediately available at Orangina Schweppes France to confirm the appointment, but Mars France confirmed that Gaillard's departure from the company was scheduled for the end of May.
Earlier this year, Suntory set up a London-based subsidiary, Suntory Beverage & Food Europe, headed by ex-Danone executive Stanislas de Gramont, to oversee the Orangina Schweppes group and other brands in the portfolio.
