Special to the Jewish Week

At the Appeal of Conscience Foundation’s 45th anniversary awards dinner last month, the chairman/CEO of Coca-Cola, Muhtar Kent, was delighted to find himself seated next to Bernard Arnault, chairman/CEO of the Paris-based LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

“Our two companies,” Kent said, “have a passion for bubbles — Coca-Cola and Dom Perignon.”

“That comparison smells of high treason!” exclaimed Arnault.
