Morgan Cederblom’s career and life achievements have been built upon his values of personal integrity, authenticity, trust, courage, accountability and commitment to his own and other people’s success and growth. These values have shaped his leadership skills throughout his career. As a former executive with The Coca-Cola Company, Morgan was trusted with the responsibility for the leadership of the company’s Swedish and Finnish subsidiaries as Executive Vice President of the Nordic and Northern Eurasia Division. He also served on the Boards of Coca-Cola Bottlers in Russia, Coca-Cola Cold Drink, Inc. in Sweden, and Coca-Cola Cold Drink, OY in Finland during this time period. Under Morgan’s direction, The Coca-Cola Company achieved a 63% increase in sales in the region while profits quadrupled. Most notably, Morgan’s successes with the Scandinavian business unit led to his selection by Coca-Cola’s former Chairman Roberto Goizueta to the lead global implementation of the organization’s Shareholder Value Management Initiative. This initiative revised Coca-Cola’s entire Strategic Planning Process worldwide using Value Based Management and EVA principles as the new foundation for all actions and resource allocation.

Morgan has advised global corporations spanning a wide range of sectors such as Siemens USA, Coca-Cola, and the Omnicom Group. In addition to VBM he conducted “Million Dollar Day” workshops for Senior Management teams which resulted in identification of significant new business opportunities and action plans for implementation.
