Coca-Cola South Pacific has recruited Chris Johnston to fill the shoes of award-winning marketer Lucie Austin.
Johnston has been with Coca-Cola in various roles since 2002 according to his LinkedIn profile.
Coke Zero, Coke Red and Diet Coke now fall under his remit as do Fanta, Glaceau Vitamin Water and a team of 50.
Austin was behind ‘Share a Coke’, which Coca-Cola’s Jonathan Mildenhall recently said is the brands “most successful” campaign in decades.
Earlier this year Austin moved to London to take on a European marketing role with Coca-Cola. Since then head of operational marketing, Jasmin Vinculado has been acting as marketing director.
