LONDON - Groupe Aeroplan, the Canadian owner of the Nectar loyalty programme in the UK, has appointed former PepsiCo marketer David Johnston as president and CEO for Europe.
Johnston, who also joins as executive vice president for the group, will be responsible for Aeroplan's operations in Europe, including Nectar, taking up the position in January.
Johnston will also oversee operations of Rewards Management Middle East, the operator of Air Miles programs in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain.
