Former Senior Vice President of Coca-Cola Refreshments Joins Innovative Packaging-Centric Supply Chain Services Company

ATLANTA, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coregistics, a packaging-centric supply chain services company, today announced that Chris Gaffney, former senior vice president at Coca-Cola Refreshments, has been named Chief Operating Officer.  In this role, Gaffney will oversee operations in all six Coregistics facilities, ensuring companywide alignment with overarching strategy.  His responsibilities will include facility-by-facility performance and execution, technology and business intelligence, corporate culture and employee development, quality assurance and customer care.

"Chris has a proven record of translating strategy to action and delivering results. He has successfully developed high performance, cross-functional teams at one of the most admired companies in the world. He has built the kind of relationships that lead directly to top line revenue growth and he now brings that experience and expertise to Coregistics," said Eric Wilhelm, CEO of Coregistics. "At his core, Chris Gaffney is a problem solver. He can ask the question 'how do we get better faster' and balance the answer against the everyday needs of a diverse customer base spread out across multiple locations. That's no easy task, but the results are going to benefit our customers immensely."

Recognized as an enterprise supply chain leader, Gaffney brings almost 30 years of supply chain and logistics experience to Coregistics. Prior to joining the company, Gaffney served as a senior vice president on the supply chain team at Coca-Cola Refreshments, where he led supply chain strategy and long term infrastructure planning, as well as capacity and inventory planning. During his 19-year tenure at Coca-Cola, Gaffney held a variety of senior executive-level positions, including president of Coca-Cola Supply and vice president of logistics for Coca-Cola North America. While at Coca-Cola, Gaffney led the successful creation of a supply chain and logistics shared services company and oversaw the supply chain integration work stream for the largest vertical integration in company history. Prior to joining Coca-Cola, Gaffney held positions at global meat and protein provider AJC International and at Frito-Lay.

"Coregistics has broken the mold of the traditional 'contract packager' and is solving an ever-growing supply chain problem that exists for both large and small manufacturers of consumer goods: how to efficiently and effectively manage customized product," said Gaffney. "I've watched Eric and the team rapidly grow Coregistics and I know from experience that this type of success and growth opens the door to a whole new set of challenges. I am very excited to join this team and apply my experience to further develop what I believe is an incredibly unique and powerful supply chain solution."

Gaffney holds a Bachelor of Science: Industrial Engineering and a Master of Science: Industrial Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
