Coca-Cola has named Jennifer Mann as the new president of the company's North America operating unit, replacing Alfredo Rivera, who will be stepping down on Dec. 31.

Mann, who joined the company in 1997 and will begin her new role on January 1, 2023, currently serves as corporate senior vice president and president of Coca-Cola's Global Ventures, responsible for globally scaling acquisitions and brands, including Costa Coffee and Coca-Cola’s investment in Monster Beverage Corp.

Prior to her role with Global Ventures, Mann served as chief people officer for the company and as chief of staff for Quincey. From 2012 to 2015, she was vice president and general manager of Coca-Cola Freestyle soda fountain machines, where she accelerated the global expansion of Freestyle and led its development across the Coca-Cola system.

“Jennifer has emerged as a strong business leader during her 25-year career with the company. Her background in operations across the United States and globally makes her a great fit to lead the company’s largest operating unit,"​ said James Quincey, chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company.

First joining the company in 1984 in its Latin America unit, Rivera has led the North America operating unit since August 2020 and in that time initiated a successful restructuring of the business. He will remain as a senior advisor for Coca-Cola until March 2023. 

“Alfredo has been a highly valued business partner for me and countless others across our system for nearly four decades. I thank Alfredo for his service and wish him all the best," ​said Quincey.
