Kathleen "KC" Ciaramello is President, Foodservice and On-Premise, Coca-Cola North America. She is responsible for a fully integrated business unit serving all global, national, and regional customers operating within the channels of business that are headquartered in the United States. Originally from a close-knit family in Massachusetts, KC began her career with Coca-Cola in 1985, where she worked her way up in the business. From her first job calling on Coca-Cola customers along the boardwalk of the Jersey Shore to her role today, it is clear that KC never wastes a moment, a lesson she learned from her mother. Her grandmother, who raised silk worms in Lebanon to pay for passage on a ship to immigrate to New York by herself at the age of 12, also influenced KC's "how, not if" mindset. Well-known at Coca-Cola for leading with both her heart and her head, she applies these lessons to growing our business today through our Total Beverage Strategy.
