The Pepsi Bottling Group has appointed Eric Llopis as senior vice president and chief strategy officer, as the bottler enters a period of reorganisation.

Llopis will be responsible for leading company-wide planning and will report directly to chairman and CEO Eric Foss, Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG) announced today.

His appointment comes two weeks after PBG announced it would cut more than 3,000 jobs across Mexico, Europe and the US in a major restructuring move.

Prior to joining PBG, Llopis served as director of competitive strategy at Miller Brewing Company. He advised many major consumer goods firms, including Diageo, Coors and PepsiCo, in his earlier role as a management consultant.

PBG last month cut earnings per share targets for the full-year, to a range of $2.20 to $2.26 per share instead of the previous $2.32 to $2.38.
