Fayard will be replaced by vice president and controller Kathy Waller, who joined Coke in 1987 from Deloitte.

Coca-Cola said on Tuesday quarterly global sales volumes rose less than it estimated and fell in North America.

Coke’s shares were up 0.72 percent at $37.37 on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday.

Rival PepsiCo Inc (PEP.N) is facing pressure from activist investor Nelson Peltz to spin off its slow-growing beverage business from its flourishing snacks division.
