ATNI strives to build an inclusive and international team to deliver its mission. The team, including advisors and consultants, is spread across five continents. Local knowledge and expertise are key to ensuring we can meet our goals.
An international board of independent, unpaid members ensures that ATNI is well governed, according to international best-practice, and meets the requirements of its funders. None of the members are employed by any food or beverage sector company, to preserve its independence and credibility.
An independent, international Expert Group guides ATNI’s approach on influencing markets and company behavior. The current Expert Group members are listed below. ATNI also thanks former members Linda Meyers and Boyd Swinburn for their past contributions. Note that a separate group advises on the approach to assessing BMS marketing, and specific review groups are established for the development of country tools.
