DINA COKER

Founder & CEO

As Founder and General Manager of Blink, Dina has worked with manufacturing and service-based industries to launch, build and/or refresh both trade and consumer brands. Dina brings unique experience particularly to international brands whose desire is to break into the American market and build a business with the world’s most powerful consumer. With much of her heritage focused on building consumer brands, Dina has spoken widely about the American consumer’s changing shopping dynamics and how nimble companies can take advantage of the shifting retail landscape.

Dina’s passion is to help build transparent communication strategies and tactics for companies delivering increasingly sustainable products. Whether it be in the textile supply chain, the technology sector or with manufacturers of hard goods, Dina has helped develop communications platforms and systems which allow the consumer to independently judge the value of a company’s sustainable initiatives and products.

Dina earned her BA from Colgate University, her MBA from Duke University and her Masters in Sustainability from Harvard University. She has two hilarious children, is an avid ACC basketball fan, loves cooking and good Bourbon and, to help her garden grow, keeps bees in her backyard.
