Global Group Director, Emerging Technologies & Strategic Innovation
The Coca-Cola Company, USA

Anthony is Global Group Director Emerging Technologies & Strategic Innovation, The Coca-Cola Company. A career that began in music took a detour into programming, migrated into investment banking via reinsurance and then progressed into leading large scale multi-year Business Transformation initiatives within Coca-Cola Bottling around Western and Eastern Europe, including vending operations in the Far East. After taking up an engagement leading business development in a UK financial startup, a return to Coca-Cola Europe beckoned, leading a Pan-European iTunes/Coca-Cola music program and developing data visualization and crowd-sourcing ideation solutions.

Now based in Atlanta - and after continuing to drive a number of business transformation initiatives including the implementation of an enterprise-wide social collaboration platform and crowd-sourced ideation - Anthony’s current focus is on leading an IT Innovation Pipeline powered by the creation and co-founding of “The Bridge”, a Software Technology Incubator launched in Tel Aviv, Israel with an innovative commercialization program for early stage startups.
