1.7 - Jim Dinkins - Writing Our Next Chapter Together
Today is a big day -- this is the final episode of our first season of Total Refresh. Thank you for taking this journey with us! To finish the season, we’re talking with the President of Coca-Cola North America, Jim Dinkins, who leads our business in the United States and Canada. His hope is that when we look back on this chapter in our business’ history, we see that the people running the company had the vision to look far enough into the future, anticipate changes and put us in the position to win. The son of a preacher and a teacher, Jim grew up in Georgia. His sense of adventure and willingness to try new things has fueled his career in the food and beverage industry, including many roles across Coca-Cola North America. From his start as an area account executive in Foodservice & On-Premise to the Minute Maid Business Unit, Jim’s professional journey helped prepare him for his role today, and through it all, he continues to learn, grow and carve out meaningful time with his family.
