Rockstar — Debbie Ebalobo

Debbie Ebalobo is a seasoned communications professional with a diverse background spanning multiple industries, including automotive, motorsports, pharmaceutical, and telecommunications.  Debbie’s international upbringing—starting in the Philippines, moving through Scotland, and finally settling in the United States— uniquely positioned her for her current role as the Senior Director of Global External and Financial Communications at The Coca-Cola Company.  

In this role, she oversees communications related to global public policy and reputational risk around the world. She also serves as the global communications lead for the Company’s Incident Management and Crisis Resolution program and supports strategic communications for the Company’s global special events activations, including the Olympics and FIFA World Cup.

Before her current role, Debbie led significant brand public relations initiatives within Coca-Cola North America’s still beverages division. Notably, she was at the helm of the PR launch for AHA sparkling water, marking the first major brand launch in a decade for Coca-Cola’s flagship market.

In addition to her professional commitments, Debbie contributes her time to the Alumni Board of the University of Georgia's Journalism School, enriching the next generation of communicators. Debbie’s interests outside of work reflect her curiosity and zest for life, with a keen interest in history and human psychology, the mysteries of outer space, and roller-skating trips with friends. She currently resides in Atlanta with her wife Lexine and their beloved puppy Kobe.
