Coke appoints new Tax Counsel

Tuesday, 18 December 2007

Source: International Tax Review

William Hawkins has been elected general tax counsel and a vice president of Coca-Cola. He has worked in the company's Office of General Tax Counsel since 1998 and will now lead Coca-Cola's tax policy and strategy team.

Before Coca-Cola, Hawkins was a partner in two law firms in Washington, DC.

SG comment: I have not heard of William Hawkins before, but I remember that around the 1998 period, Coca-Cola merged in Europe with the Hellenic Bottling Company, and relocated the European Head Office to Athens in Greece, which was an interesting choice of location. As a result, a number of senior people left including Peter Culver from tax, who I believe is still UK Head of Tax for Nestle.
