Britvic plc is pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Napier to the Board as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director. Rebecca will lead the finance function across all Britvic’s markets as well as chair the ESG Committee.
Rebecca Napier is currently Chief Financial Officer at British Airways, where she has held a variety of financial roles over the last 16 years. Rebecca’s BA career included roles for the broader IAG entity, where she sits on the IAG Loyalty and IAG Cargo boards in parallel to her BA role. Rebecca started her career at Deloitte, having qualified as a Chartered Accountant, before she joined British Airways in audit at a time when the company was listed in both the UK and the US.
In recent years, in her role as British Airways CFO, she has demonstrated both resilience and intellectual rigour in her approach to build the BA business back to profitability post covid. Her ability to do this within an inflationary environment is testament to her highly commercial CFO style and her significant experience as a strategic business partner.
Simon Litherland, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I am truly delighted to welcome Rebecca to Britvic, and know she will be a strong addition to the Britvic Board and Executive team. Rebecca brings a wealth of commercial, regulatory, and international experience, which, coupled with her financial and leadership expertise will be invaluable as we continue to successfully grow our business.”
Rebecca Napier said: "I am very much looking forward to joining the Britvic team as the company continues to deliver value across people, planet and financial performance metrics for all its stakeholders.”
Rebecca's start date will be confirmed in due course. She will replace Joanne Wilson, who will be leaving the company shortly, as previously announced. Interim CFO arrangements, also as previously communicated, are already in place.
