Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


On June 28, 2017, Val Stalowir, age 54, was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Reed’s Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Reed’s”). On June 28, 2017, the board of directors of Reed’s also expanded the board to six seats and appointed Mr. Stalowir to serve as a director, filling the newly created vacancy.


Since November 2016, Mr. Stalowir has served as an independent food and beverage investment consultant working with varied consumer focused private equity groups. Prior, from April 2015 to November 2016, Mr. Stalowir served as Chief Executive Officer of privately held International Harvest, Inc., a leading supplier of certified organic, gluten free, non-GMO, vegan and raw superfoods. In 2011, Mr. Stalowir founded Global Restaurant Group, LLC (GRG) in Kyiv, Ukraine, a privately held, international quick serve restaurant operator and platform that is now YUM! Brands’ lead KFC franchisee in Ukraine. Mr. Stalowir served as Chief Executive Officer of GRG until September 2014, when, due to political and economic challenges in Ukraine, much of the investment activity in the country was suspended. GRG LLC continues to operate led by local management and recently announced the opening of an additional restaurant in the capital city of Kyiv. From 2010 to 2012, Mr. Stalowir served as Executive Partner of APTA Capital, LLC, a US private equity firm providing growth equity investments and operational leadership to consumer branded companies. From 2002 to 2010, Mr. Stalowir was Chief Executive Officer of Preferred Brand Holdings, LLC, a private equity fund backed by Emigrant Savings Bank, where he co-founded the consumer practice and led the investment and growth strategies for five portfolio companies in the food and beverage sector. From 1999 to 2001, he served as President, North American division of Tomra Systems, ASA, a publically traded Norwegian company and the global leader for beverage container return and processing systems and reverse vending machines. Prior, Mr. Stalowir served in marketing and general management positions with the Coca-Cola Company and the Quaker Oats Company.


Mr. Stalowir earned his MBA in Marketing and Finance with Distinction from the University of Michigan in 1990 and received dual BA degrees in Economics and Art History from the College of William and Mary in 1985.


There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Stalowir and any other persons pursuant to which he was appointed a director. Reed’s and Mr. Stalowir are negotiating Mr. Stalowir’s employment agreement. Mr. Stalowir will receive a base salary of $300,000 per annum, performance based cash bonus structure and equity comprised of stock options and/or restricted stock grants equal to 4% of Reed’s outstanding common stock, on a fully diluted basis. There are no current or proposed transactions in which Mr. Stalowir has a direct or indirect material interest in which Reed’s is involved and in which the amount involved exceeds the lesser of $120,000 or one percent of the average of Reed’s total assets at year end for the last two completed fiscal years.


In conjunction with the appointment of Reed’s new Chief Executive Officer, Stefan Freeman stepped down from his position as Interim Chief Executive Officer and accepted the position of Chief Operating Officer of Reed’s, also effective June 28, 2017.


A copy of the press release issued by Reed’s announcing the new Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.
