Anne Thistleton is a Harvard MBA and a 25-year consumer-marketing veteran, having worked across four continents and five diverse industries. Her most recent corporate position was at The Coca-Cola Company as Director of Marketing and Capability Development for Europe, Eurasia and Africa.
During her tenure at Coca-Cola she pioneered work on applying the vast academic knowledge of how the mind works to the field of marketing in order to begin rebuilding marketing capabilities for the organization. For the past three years she has been focused on developing specific marketing focused applications, testing and improving them with multi-nationals in their worldwide markets.
