Seth Goldman is co-founder, president, and TeaEO of Honest Tea®, the company he co-founded in 1998 with Barry Nalebuff, professor at the Yale School of Management. Over the past 15 years the company has thrived as consumers have shifted toward healthier and more sustainable diets. The company was acquired by the Coca-Cola Company in 2011, expanding the reach and impact of its mission. The company’s entrepreneurial leadership and unique marketing initiatives have helped build a “challenger brand” with a focus on innovation, transparency and health.
