Over the course of this 28-year career at the Coca-Cola Company, Brian Korkus served in numerous positions, including Vice President of Application and Technology Support, IT Director and General Manager of Global Field Operations.
A native of Southern California, Korkus studied Business Administration at Pasadena City College and California State University, Los Angeles. He began his career in Accounting in small manufacturing companies, before working for the Xerox Corporation.
Over the years Korkus organized a number of company-sponsored fundraising events in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and charities focused on combating Human Trafficking and victim support.
Korkus retired last May and relocated to Vero Beach from Atalanta with his wife, Robin. After catching up on neglected hobbies, meeting new friends, he began looking for local activities to get involved with.
“I attended the Diamonds in the Rough charity event in January and met Lalita Janke. During the evening I learned about, and was inspired by, the great work being done at Camp Haven,” explained Korkus.
“I heard the stories of two of the men who were going through the program and saw how their lives were being rebuilt,” continued Korkus. “I offered to help the organization and was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to serve on the Camp Haven Board of Directors. I look forward to the work ahead and the contribution I can make to this great organization.”
