Now, we are in a position to leverage this flexibility to return to a traditional company and bottling operating model in North America, which will enhance our focus on execution and accelerate the refranchising of our bottling system in our flagship market.”Added Kent: “Sandy and Paul are proven leaders with extensive System experience, and they will make a great team. Sandy knows the U.S. business as well as any beverage executive and has played an integral leadership role in implementing our 21 st Century beverage partnership model in the U.S. Paul is a very strong operator who brings 17 years of U.S. and international bottling experience to this new role. And Paul will have the benefit of working closely with Irial, whose leadership of BIG has significantly improved the performance of our company-owned bottling operations around the world.
