UK soft drink company Britvic has appointed Rebecca Napier to the Board as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director.
She will lead the finance function across all Britvic’s markets as well as chair the ESG Committee.
Napier is currently Chief Financial Officer at British Airways, where she has held a variety of financial roles over the last 16 years. Her BA career included roles for the broader IAG entity, where she sits on the IAG Loyalty and IAG Cargo boards in parallel to her BA role. She started her career at Deloitte, having qualified as a Chartered Accountant, before she joined British Airways in audit at a time when the company was listed in both the UK and the US.
“In recent years, in her role as British Airways CFO, she has demonstrated both resilience and intellectual rigour in her approach to build the BA business back to profitability post covid. Her ability to do this within an inflationary environment is testament to her highly commercial CFO style and her significant experience as a strategic business partner,” says Britvic.
Napier will replace Joanne Wilson, who will be leaving the company shortly, as previously announced.
