US: Pepsi names president of food service division
Pepsi-Cola North America, part of food and drink maker PepsiCo Inc , on Monday named Brian Cornell as president of its foodservice division, which is responsible for Pepsi drinks sold at restaurants, schools and other spots.
"Brian is a proven leader, with an exceptional grasp of our customers' wants and needs," said Al Carey, chief operating officer of PepsiCo Beverages and Foods North America. "His experiences with a wide range of brands and trade channels make him uniquely qualified to sustain our momentum and drive our foodservice business to new heights."
Cornell, 43, has served during the past year as region president, Europe, for PepsiCo Beverages International (PBI), with additional responsibility as senior vice president, functional beverages. In this role, he has overseen PBI's business in Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as Tropicana Europe, while also leading the strategic development of its fast-growing portfolio of non-carbonated brands, including Tropicana, Gatorade, Aquafina and SoBe.
"Cornell was among the most highly regarded senior executives to join PepsiCo when it acquired Tropicana from the Seagram Company in 1998," Pepsi said in a statement.
After joining Tropicana in 1991, Cornell held positions of increasing responsibility in both sales and marketing. He was named senior vice president and general manager of Tropicana North America in 1998 and president of Tropicana International in 1999. He joined Seagram in 1984. An alumnus of UCLA and its Graduate School of Management, Cornell began his career with the Gallo Wine Company in 1981.
