CCEP Names Ed Walker As New Finance Chief

Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) has announced the appointment of company executive Ed Walker as its next chief financial officer.

Walker will assume the new role from 1 July, with outgoing finance boss Nik Jhangiani supporting the transition until August and CCEP's half-year results.

Earlier this month, Jhangiani stepped down from the position to explore another opportunity outside of the company.

Walker is an accomplished professional with more than 30 years of finance leadership experience across manufacturing, purchasing, commercial, marketing, and group functions.

He started his career as an officer in the British Army before receiving training as an accountant.


He has been with CCEP since its formation, and before that, he held several roles in Coca-Cola, including as CFO of the Coca-Cola bottler in Canada.

In the past decade, he focused on group finance planning, analysis and control.

'Fantastic And Broad Finance Experience'

Commenting on the appointment, CCEP chief executive Damian Gammell, stated, "Ed has fantastic and broad finance experience across the Coca-Cola system. I have worked with him for many years, so I know he will continue to drive the business forward.

"He will be a great addition to the executive team and I wish him all the best in his new well-deserved role."


Walker added, "It continues to be a genuine privilege to work with so many talented and dedicated people across the business, and I look forward to collaborating with them closely to achieve our shared goals."

In April, CCEP reported an "encouraging start" to the year with year-on-year revenue and volume growth of 7.5% and 7.9%, respectively, in the first quarter.
