Mulva will be succeeded as vice president of investor relations and secretary of the corporation by Henry H. Hubble, currently general manager of operations and best practices, ExxonMobil Refining & Supply Co., Fairfax, Va.

Also, Coca-Cola Co. president and COO Steve Heyer will leave by "mutual agreement" in a few months as CEO E. Neville Isdell puts his stamp on the world's largest soft-drink maker. Isdell, who was named chairman and CEO on May 4, said in a statement, "We agreed that Steve could best realize his aspirations by pursuing opportunities outside of the company."

No replacement was named for Heyer, 51, a former Turner Broadcasting executive who revamped Coca-Cola's advertising, cut costs and brought in other outside executives in his three years at the 118-year-old company.
