Coke Names President of International Unit

January 18, 2006|From Associated Press

Coca-Cola Co. named company veteran Muhtar Kent president of international operations, a new position, as the world's largest beverage maker continued to centralize its leadership.

Coke's chief executive, Neville Isdell, said it was premature to consider whether Kent, who would be responsible for all of the Atlanta-based company's operations outside of North America, could one day be his replacement.

Coke has been working for nearly a year to realign its global divisions into a more centralized structure.
