“We are deeply indebted to Don for his 30-plus years of tireless dedication to our Company,” said Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO, The Coca-Cola Company. “In addition to his stellar career as a diplomat and respected public servant, he has spent countless hours working for our Board and on behalf of our Company – for which we are honored. Notably, in 1985, Don signed on as the inaugural chair of our Public Issues and Diversity Review Committee and he led this important work until 2012. He has been a great advisor to me and we have all gained from his clear direction and leadership.”

Wallenberg, 58, is a highly respected business executive who has served as a Director of The Coca-Cola Company since 2008. Currently, he is Chairman of the Board of Investor AB, a Swedish industrial holding company, a role he has held since 2005.

Wallenberg also serves as Vice Chairman of Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB, a North European financial group, and served as its President and Chief Executive Officer from 1997 to 1998 and as Chairman of the Board from 1998 to 2005. In addition, Wallenberg serves as Vice Chairman of SAS AB, a Swedish airline company; Deputy Chairman of Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, a global telecommunications company; and Director of ABB Ltd., a power and automation technology company. He also serves as a member of the International Business Council of the World Economic Forum and the European Round Table of Industrialists.

“We thank Jacob for his years of service to our Board,” said Kent. “We have benefited from his counsel, international background and global perspective, and we are also deeply grateful for the time and commitment he has given our Company.”
