Zambians in the News

Has anyone ever wondered how far Zambia extends its impact?

“Edward Neville Isdell was born June 8, 1943, in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland. As a 10-year-old, he moved to Lusaka, Zambia, where his father worked as a police fingerprint and ballistics expert.

Isdell, 60, who took over as Coca-Cola’s chief executive officer yesterday, said on May 4 when he was named to the top job that emerging markets such as China and India would be key to reviving sales growth. Much of the 35 years Isdell had worked at the company were spent in emerging markets such as the Philippines, South Africa and Zambia.”
