Jones Soda Co. said it’s replacing its chief financial officer, Hassan Natha, with Michael O’Brien.

The beleaguered Seattle soda company (NASDAQ: JSDA) this month announced a second-quarter loss of $2.7 million. Late last year, founder and former CEO Peter van Stolk stepped down, and was replaced by Stephen Jones.

O’Brien was formerly the CFO at Pyramid Breweries of Seattle, before that company was bought by Independent Brewers United Inc. of Vermont. O'Brien's annual base salary will be $200,000, according to Jones.

Natha “plans to pursue other interests,” according to Jones Soda.
