The Coca-Cola Company today announced that Bradley Gayton, who currently serves as senior vice president and global general counsel, has been appointed to a strategic consultant role. In this new capacity, he will focus on working with Chairman and CEO James Quincey to drive certain key objectives.
Gayton assumes his new role effective immediately. His successor as senior vice president and global general counsel will be announced separately.
“I, along with the company’s leadership team and the board of directors, thank Bradley for his service as our global general counsel,” Quincey said. “I look forward to working with him in this new role.”
Since joining Coca-Cola from Ford Motor Company, Gayton has led the global Coca-Cola legal organization through an important period of transition. Gayton has also led initiatives for innovation, diversity and inclusion, including advancing public service through the law.
“Bradley has shown himself to be a strategic and results-oriented leader,” Quincey said. “Coca-Cola has benefitted from Bradley’s expertise and commitment to these challenges, and I am confident Bradley will continue to advance these initiatives in his role as a strategic consultant over the next year.”
“It has been a privilege to do such important work with my amazing colleagues in the legal department and to be part of Coca-Cola’s dynamic leadership team,” Gayton said. “I look forward to working with James in this new strategic role.”
