The Coca-Cola Company today announced Senior Vice President of Global Community Connections and Chair of The Coca-Cola Foundation, Ingrid Saunders Jones, will retire after 30 years of distinguished service with the Company, effective June 1.
A well-respected global leader, Jones joined The Coca-Cola Company in 1982 and has held roles of increasing responsibility around the Company’s corporate giving and community outreach. She has served as Chair of The Coca-Cola Foundation since 1991.
During her three-decade Coca-Cola career, Jones has led the transformation of the Company’s philanthropic outreach, growing a U.S.-focused program into a global campaign, which now includes water stewardship, active healthy living, community recycling and education programs worldwide. Under Jones’ leadership, The Coca-Cola Foundation has awarded more than $500 million to thousands of community organizations worldwide.
“Over the past 30 years, I have been grateful to work for a company that commits the talent and time of its employees and its philanthropic dollars to issues and organizations that empower and enhance the lives of others,” said Jones. “I’m proud of the work of the Foundation and believe deeply in the people and communities we’ve served around the world. I am fortunate to have worked with extraordinary leaders, community supporters and caring and committed associates.”Jones’ community and leadership accomplishments are many. They include chairing a number of notable national and local organizations such as the United Way of Metro Atlanta, the Woodruff Arts Center, National Black Arts Festival, and The Carter Center Board of Advisors. In addition, she serves or has served on the board of organizations such as Clark Atlanta University, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, the Ohio State University President’s Council on Women, Girl Scouts of the USA, The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation. She is currently the Chair of the National Council of Negro Women.
