Who is the new leader in Greater China?
I believe that you will also notice that the person in charge of Coca Cola’s Greater China region has also changed. Vamsi Mohan thatI, now president of Coca Cola’s South Pacific business unit, will become president of Coca Cola’s Greater China Operations Division under the new restructuring. At present, the president of Coca Cola’s Greater China and South Korea region is curt Ferguson.
Vamsi Mohan thatI, President of Coca Cola’s Greater China Operations Division
According to Coca Cola’s global website, vamsi Mohan thatI holds a bachelor’s degree and an MBA degree in electronic and communication engineering from the Indian School of management in Calcutta, India, and has completed the advanced management course of Harvard Business School.
According to the data, vamsi Mohan thatI joined the Coca Cola system in India in 1998 and held various leadership positions in operation, market execution and general management. At present, he has been in the Coca Cola system for more than 20 years.
While working at Coca Cola, vamsi Mohan ThatI has managed a number of marketing businesses, including regional director of Coca Cola’s own bottling operations in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, regional director of its own bottling operations in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar, CEO of Coca Cola’s Vietnam and Cambodia bottling business, and general manager of Coca Cola Malaysia.
“Vamsi has extensive experience in the Coca Cola system and has a strong track record in achieving performance and building capabilities in customer management, market execution, digital technology and personnel development. “Coca Cola said it played a role in driving sustainable growth in Vietnam.
Vamsi Mohan thatI’s style is rather low-key. Although he has worked for Coca Cola for more than 20 years and has been the leader of many markets such as Australia, there is no information about its business in public reports.
When searching the public information, the snack agent noticed that most of the topics shared by vamsi Mohan thatI are environmental protection topics, which is also a hot topic in the beverage industry in recent years. For example, last year, when two Coca Cola companies announced that they would use recyclable materials to make 70% of their plastic bottles by the end of 2019, vamsi Mohan thatI, then president of Coca Cola Australia, said: “as Australia’s largest beverage company, we have a responsibility to help solve the plastic waste crisis. That’s why we’re going to make 70% plastic bottles from recycled plastics by the end of 2019. ” He said Coke’s goal is to keep plastic packaging away from the ocean and landfills and reuse it.
Also last year, Coca Cola re launched the name bottle in Australia. At the time, vamsi Mohan thatI said: “Coca Cola has always been inclusive, and this summer we launched Coca Cola with hundreds of names, which reflect the wonderful diversity of Australia in 2019, which makes us very excited.” The last time vamsi Mohan thatI spoke in the media earlier this year was Coca Cola Australia’s launch of limited edition cans in honor of local firefighters. “We want to thank all the firefighters and volunteers who went to the front to solve this crisis. We are deeply touched by their courage and resilience as the tragedy of Australian bushfires continues to spread. ” Vamsi Mohan Thati。
Bosses of five global beverage category teams
Meanwhile, Coca Cola also announced the new boss list of five global beverage category teams. “Building a successful, focused and growing portfolio is a top priority for the company. It requires innovation, marketing efficiency and effectiveness. ” Coca Cola said it was consolidating and deepening its leadership in five global categories, with the latest appointment of a president for each category.
- Coca Cola: Selman Careaga is the president of Coca Cola’s North American soda business unit.
- Flavored bubble water: Jasmin vinculado, general manager of bubble water in Mexico division.
