Brett O'Brien, currently the group's Moutain Dew, Flavours and AMP Energy marketing VP, is taking the role vacated by Sarah Robb O'Hagan in August. He will relocate from New York to Chicago and report to PepsiCo Americas Beverages president Debra Crew.

A replacement for O'Brien will be announced “shortly”, she added.
O'Brien joined PepsiCo in 2000 and has held several marketing roles, including Juice Drink brand marketing and the energy brands portfolio.
