Coca-Cola Europe’s veteran general counsel Christopher Barnard has retired from the company, with Sandra Mori stepping up to replace him.
Barnard began his career in private practice in New Zealand and originally joined the soft drinks giant in a management role. Before taking the Europe role Barnard was legal chief for Australasia, Indonesia and Korea, a position he took up in 1998.
He was appointed general counsel for Coca-Cola’s European operations in 2004. Following his retirement Barnard has moved into a consultancy role and remains based in London. During his time at Coca-Cola he focused on competition, IP, joint ventures and M&A.
Mori, who joined the company as senior operations counsel for Coca-Cola Europe, was promoted to assistant general counsel in January. She has now formally taken over as general counsel for Europe.
