"Never let your memories be greater than your dreams."
The only child of factory workers, Doug Ivester was born in 1947 in New Holland, Georgia, a small, rural community outside Gainesville. His father worked at the local textile plant, which was the town's major employer. His mother stayed home for the most part until Ivester was in high school, when she started working at a small motors factory nearby. Ivester describes his parents as hard-working. "They instilled in me an appreciation for hard work, but more than that they instilled in me a real sense of opportunity," he says. According to Ivester, no one in New Holland had a great deal of money, but he grew up believing that he could make something of himself if he studied and worked hard. "One thing I learned early in life was to never let my memories be greater than my dreams," he says.
In 1994, Doug Ivester was elected president and chief operating officer and a director of the company. In 1997, he was elected chairman of the board and chief executive officer of The Coca-Cola Company, the tenth chairman in the company's history.
Ivester is proud of the fact that he was the first member of his family to go to college. "That made a tremendous difference in opening up opportunities in my life. Of his Horatio Alger Award, Ivester says, "It is a tremendous honor for me.

M. Douglas Ivester is President of Deer Run Investments, LLC. He retired as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The Coca-Cola Company in February 2000.

During the previous five years, he also served as a director of Georgia-Pacific Corporation. Since November 2009, Mr. Ivester has served as the Lead Director of our Board. We believe that Mr. Ivester’s long and varied business career, including service as Chairman and CEO of a large, publicly-traded company, well qualifies him to serve on our Board.

Our Board has determined that Mr. Ivester meets the definition of “audit committee financial expert” as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and regulations.
Conscious Choice: Coke's Broken Promise | EPA Tier 2, 20 Nov 2001 [cached]
In December 1990, Coca-Cola Company announced a plan to begin using recycled plastic in its soda bottles in the U.S. Coke,s senior vice president at the time, M. Douglas Ivester, said, "Producing new plastic beverage bottles with a blend of recycled plastic is a significant step ahead in plastics recycling.The technology will allow the,closed loop, recycling of our plastic bottles, just as our other suppliers use recycled aluminum and steel for cans and recycled glass for glass bottles."Pepsi made a similar announcement, prompting the New York Times to report: "Coke and Pepsi took their long rivalry to the environmental arena yesterday, with each company saying it would be the first to sell soft drinks in plastic bottles made with materials recycled from used bottles."
Since then Mr. Ivester, who is now Coke,s chairman of the board and CEO, must have changed his mind about the value of plastics recycling, because almost none of the 10 billion plastic bottles Coke sells each year in the U.S. , more than 25 million every day , currently contain any recycled plastic.Why the change of heart?
One bottle at a time, says GRRN , either the bottle of Coke you choose not to buy, or the one that you buy or scavenge, rinse out, label with a 55, stamp and a message such as "Please Recycle This Plastic into Your Next Plastic Bottle," and return to the company (Coca-Cola, Attn: Mr. M. Douglas Ivester, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, One Coca-Cola Plaza, Atlanta, GA, 30313).
