TORONTO — Cott Corp. has named David T. Gibbons interim chief executive officer.
"Dave is a very seasoned business leader," said Frank Weise, chairman of the board. "His knowledge of private label and relationships with our customers will be invaluable. The internal challenges that we have experienced in no way negate our strategy, our industry position or our potential for growth and success."
Mr. Gibbons was appointed to the board of directors in March 2007 and was previously president and c.e.o. of Perrigo Co.
A search for a permanent c.e.o. is under way.
