Britvic plc has announces the appointment of Rémy Sharps as the Managing Director of Britvic Teissiere International, Britvic’s business unit which includes all operations in mainland Europe and all export markets. Rémy Sharps will succeed Hessel de Jong who will be stepping down from the company at the end of February, to focus on other opportunities.

Commenting on the announcement, Simon Litherland, Britvic CEO, said: “The Britvic team and I are delighted to welcome Rémy to the Britvic family. He has extensive knowledge and experience of the French and international FMCG market and a proven track record for driving positive momentum and delivering significant growth for businesses in his previous roles at Carlsberg and Colgate-Palmolive. Rémy’s leadership will be invaluable as we continue to develop and deliver our growth ambitions for our international business.”

Rémy Sharps said: “I am delighted to be joining Britvic. I grew up with the Teisseire brand, I am happy to work with a very committed team and contribute to the development of Britvic’s brand portfolio in the future. I also appreciate the company’s commitment to sustainability through its Healthier People, Healthier Planet strategy.”

Rémy spent 10 years with the Carlsberg group, working across numerous sales roles before being appointed Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kronenbourg SAS, France’s leading brewer and subsidiary of the Carlsberg Group. With his team, he successfully led the company’s turnaround, accelerated the premium development of the brand portfolio, the widespread success of alcohol- free beers, including the launch of Tourtel Twist, and also initiated a real agroecological transition through the launch of the first responsible barley sector, for the 1664 brand.

Before this he acted as Chief Sales Officer for Carlsberg Group globally working across over 80 markets to transform sales and revenue growth, especially in China and Western Europe. Prior to joining the Carlsberg Group, he spent 19 years with the Colgate Palmolive Group in various sales and marketing roles.

Simon Litherland continued: “Finally, as we bid a fond farewell to Hessel, I’d like to thank him for his leadership and significant contribution to Britvic’s growth journey over the past eight years, and I wish him well in his next business ventures.”

Since joining Britvic in 2015, Hessel has successfully grown the international business through the establishment of the major export brands – London Essence and Mathieu Teissiere – and through a series of new partnerships across the world.
