Cott Corporation has appointed Tom Harrington, the chief executive of DS Services when it was acquired by the business in 2016, as its new CEO.
The water and coffee services company has announced that current CEO Jerry Fowden will transition to the role of executive chairman, replacing David Gibbons, who will retire. All of the changes will take effect when Cott’s next fiscal year begins in January.
Harrington said: “I welcome the opportunity and appreciate the trust that Jerry and the board have placed in me to continue to build upon the success already achieved. I am excited about continuing to work with Jerry and Cott’s senior leadership team to further build our leadership position as the preeminent international route based direct to consumer water and coffee solutions service provider.”
