Helen Smith Price has been named president of the Coca-Cola Foundation, the beverage giant said Wednesday.
Price, who joined Coke in 1993 as Corporate External Affairs Director, will take on the role as well as Vice President of Global Community Affairs, on April 16.
She replaces Lisa Borders, who left the foundation in March to become president of the WNBA.
“Helen’s longstanding commitment to serving the community and her proven success within The Coca-Cola Foundation make her an excellent choice for this role,” said Bea Perez, vice president and chief sustainability officer for Coke. “I am confident that under Helen’s leadership, the Foundation will continue to flourish and grow while strengthening communities around the world.”
