Recently, Coca-Cola Amatil NZ (CCANZ) celebrated the service of 226 employees that have contributed to the business for 5 to 40+ years. We met with one of the faces behind a prized Golden Bottle award to find out exactly what has kept him at CCANZ for a whopping 20 years! Meet Aaron Corley, the current National Technical Manager at CCANZ.

Aaron joined the business as a budding Management Cadet in 1993 and has since worked his way through numerous roles within Supply Chain, Operations and Manufacturing Systems amongst others working on a host of innovative projects. Not only has he worked across several business functions but also regions, clocking up experience in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Here’s what’s keeping Aaron at CCANZ:

“First and foremost it is the people and the culture. I have the privilege of working with a very talented and engaged collection of peers and colleagues who are very focussed on achieving an extremely high set of standards and performance”

The people “are extremely passionate about our brands and products”

“The business has been able to provide a very dynamic environment which has (and continues) to provide an extremely stimulating professional challenge”

His journey to date has been shaped by the investment in his development, allowing him to innovate and create and work on projects he describes as “once in a lifetime”.
