Job Description Summary

Following is the normal, perfunctory stuff that you'd find in most job descriptions. I usually find those pretty boring and not all that helpful. So, I thought I'd tell you, in my words, what I'm looking for.

First, our marketing leadership team is committed to the creation of a new culture. A culture where people want to come to work and one that is known as the best at team development and training. We believe that when this happens, engagement follows.

This is a pretty bold statement, I know, and we're not there yet but we're committed to getting to our goal.

  • Proven track record of team development.  I'd like to hear what you've done to grow your teams?  What were the results?
  • Ability to lead and inspire teams. How do you approach this? Examples?
  • In addition to team development and leadership
  • External orientation. This role is responsible for helping the Foodservice BU navigate the changing world of digital and data analytics.  This requires some understanding of the space as well as an understanding of the needs of our customer base.
  • Action orientation.  Must be able to get things done and be focused on delivering results.
  • Servant leadership approach and good team player (with peers).


  • 12-15 years of overall professional and managerial experience
  • 3-5 years of Foodservice experience with Coca-Cola North America strongly preferred
  • MBA or other advanced degree
  • A mix of analytical, large scale project management, team leadership and exposure to ELT

  • Prior customer experience and or consulting experience is a plus

Technical/Functional Skills:

  • Experience in short and long term strategy development first hand is a must
  • Strong analytics and 5-7 experience in developing analytical framework and solutions is a must
  • Strong understanding of digital technologies in the Foodservice space and ability to identify opportunities and evaluate potential partners is a must
  • Strong understanding of CCNA Foodservice data sources and platforms (insights and financials)
  • Advanced strategic thinking, including framing of issues and solutions and developing path to implementation
  • Strategic and business planning, inclusive of corporate and customer needs/considerations
  • Ability to prioritize the highest leverage opportunities
