Soft drinks producer and distributor Britvic has appointed former Tesco executive Joanne Wilson as its new chief financial officer.

Britvic – which acts as PepsiCo’s UK soft drinks distributor and owns soft drink brands such as J20, Robinsons and Tango – has recruited Wilson from data science company Dunnhumby, where she also served as the company’s CFO.

Dunnhumby is part of UK retailer Tesco, and Wilson has previously held a number of financial and commercial roles at Tesco both in the UK and in the company’s international unit.

Wilson will replace Matthew Dunn, who has been appointed as the new CFO of online fashion retailer ASOS, though her start date has not been confirmed by the company.

Simon Litherland, chief executive officer of Britvic, said: “I am delighted to welcome Joanne to Britvic, she will be a strong addition to the Britvic board and executive team.

“Joanne brings considerable retail, digital and consumer experience. This, coupled with her commercial and financial expertise, will be invaluable as we continue to successfully execute our strategy and ambitious performance and growth plans.”

Joanne Wilson said: “I am very excited to be joining Britvic and look forward to working with Simon and the team to continue to execute the strategy and deliver value for shareholders.”
