The British Soft Drinks Association has welcomed its new president, David Saint, chief operating officer of the Gerber Emig Group.
David Saint was elected at the May 2012 AGM by his contemporaries in the soft drinks industry. Although this is a new role for David, he is by no means new to the soft drinks business.
In 1993, David Saint joined Tetra Pak where he worked as finance manager for a juice and juice concentrate factory in Lipetsk, Central Russia. After three years, he joined Gerber Foods Holdings as group financial controller and from there has held the positions of finance director, managing director and his current role, chief operating officer.
In a press release, the BSDA said: “David Saint’s committed and successful 20 year career in the soft drinks industry is characteristic of the success and progress of the soft drinks industry itself. With some of its brands and companies in existence for a hundred years or more, the soft drinks industry is a living example of how long-term commitment can lead to long-term success.
“The British Soft Drinks Association is celebrating such achievements in 2012, making long-term commitment the central theme of the 2012 UK soft drinks report. So it is only fitting that David Saint is the new president of the BSDA, and we look forward to working with him, and the newly elected vice-president Dave Wallwork, managing director of The Feel Good Drinks Co Ltd.”
