Prior, Polit served as the global chief information officer for The Coca-Cola Company Bottling Investments Group for almost a decade. He joined Coca-Cola in 2003 as global director of business intelligence and distribution system. Previously, Polit held positions of increasing responsibility at Office Depot, Inc.,  and Coopers Lybrand.

He was named CIO of the Year by Latinos in Information Sciences and Technology Association (LISTA) and was a candidate for the Brillante Award given by the National Society of Hispanic MBAs.

During one Olympic Games, he was selected to carry the Olympic torch in New York. It was Coca Cola’s way of thanking him for his efforts in supporting more than 80,000 associates by spearheading IT functions.
