Ware promoted, will stay at Coke

In wake of legal problems, soft drink company holds on to top executive

to the chairman and CEO posts. Ware’s retention could improve Coke’s global standing. Daft was named Douglas Ivester’s successor after Ivester announced his retirement in early December 1999. Some suggest it was Ware’s retirement that might have contributed to Ivester’s decision to leave.
Ware is also co-chairman of the company’s Diversity Advisory Council, which was formed last spring after the discrimination suit was filed.
