Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) has appointed Patrick Minogue to the role of President of US Coffee, responsible for building on the group’s ‘leadership position in the single-serve coffee category’.
Minogue joined KDP in December 2015 as Vice President of Customer Marketing and has held several senior roles at the company, including Senior Vice President Digital and Keurig System Strategy and General Manager of Coffee Operations.
In a press release, Texas-based KDP said Minogue has been a key figure in the development of the Keurig system and the business’ e-commerce platforms, as well as strongly contributing to its renewed focus on iced and specialty coffee products.
His appointment is one of several managerial changes, which KDP said will bolster its ‘seasoned and dynamic executive leadership team'.
Andrew Archambault, KDP’s current President, Commercial & Beverage Concentrates, has been appointed President, US Refreshment Beverages, and Chief Financial Officer Sudhanshu Priyadarshi has seen his role expanded to include the position of President, International, with responsibility for KDP's Canada and Mexico businesses, respectively.
The reshuffle comes hot on the heels of the appointment of Tim Cofer as KDP’s Chief Operating Officer. The former Mondelēz International executive will then transition to the role of CEO in the second quarter of 2024, with current CEO Bob Gamgort moving to the position of Executive Chairman.
KDP posted a 3.2% year-on-year fall in US Coffee segment sales to $1.01bn in the third quarter, with K-Pod revenues declining 5%. In October 2023, the US coffee and soft beverages group said a sharper focus on e-commerce and sales of iced and ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee products would boost revenues in the fourth quarter.
