Atlanta sends John Ustas as new CEO of Coca-Cola India’s bottling operations

Coca-Cola India has announced that John Ustas will become CEO of the India Company-owned Bottling Operations (CBO) effective July 1. A statement from the company said that this move will help strengthen Coke’s management team in India and appropriately position the company to capture a new level of success in one of the company’s most important long-term growth markets.

Ustas most recently served as Managing Director of Coca-Cola Drikker AS, Coke’s Norway CBO, where he led the creation of a strong, profitable bottler. He has more than 23 years of experience in the beverage industry in the US and Europe. He will work closely with the Coca-Cola India team and report directly to Steve Buffington, Regional Director of Latin America and Asia for Bottling Investments.

Vipul Saurabh, current head of CBO operations in India, will work closely with Ustas over the next several months to ensure a smooth and successful transition. Following this transition Saurabh will move to a developmental role within Coke’s international bottling system, details of which will be announced at a later date, the statement said.
