The Coca-Cola Co will hold a shareowner meeting in April

The Coca-Cola Co is looking to add two execs to its board of directors at the next annual meeting of shareowners. 

The company said last week that Christopher Davis and Caroline Tsay have been nominated to stand for election to the board. Davis brings a background in investment management, while Tsay has experience in software and consumer internet.

Davis is chair of investment management firm Davis Advisors. Tsay is CEO of Compute Software Inc - a California-based "enterprise cloud infrastructure software company that is revolutionising how businesses run in the cloud". She previously served as VP & GM of software at Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co.

"We have nominated Chris and Caroline to join our board because they would bring valuable expertise and new perspectives to our business," said Muhtar Kent, chairman of Coca-Cola. "Chris has extensive financial experience in overseeing long-term investments, while Caroline has a technology background that spans several companies. Their skills and insights would help the board continue to help evolve and grow our business."

If elected, Davis would serve on the board's compensation committee, while Tsay would serve on the audit committee. The company's annual shareowner meeting takes place in April.
