Wayne Sanders.

Cadbury Schweppes has appointed a former Coors board member as the chairman of its U.S. soft drinks unit. The company said that Wayne Sanders will chair the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group division. The announcement follows the recent confirmation that Sir John Sunderland will retire as Cadbury Schweppes' chairman in mid-2008, as the company demerges into Cadbury plc and DPSG. Sanders joins the company having spent 28 years at Kimberley Clark. For 11 of those 28 years, he was chairman of the firm before retiring in 2003. Sanders is currently on the boards of Texas Instruments and Belo, and was also a board member of Adolph Coors Company.
