PepsiCo has appointed a new president for its UK and Ireland subsidiary. The company confirmed today (12 October) that Salman Amin will succeed Martin Glenn, who after 13 years with PepsiCo, has chosen to leave to pursue other career opportunities within the UK. Glenn had declined offers of senior PepsiCo positions outside the UK, the company added.

"I have enjoyed my time at Walkers and PepsiCo immensely and feel privileged to have worked with such talented teams over the years," said Glenn. "I believe that PepsiCo UK has a great future and, while the decision to leave has been very difficult, I feel that now it is time to seek a new challenge."

"Salman Amin is extraordinarily well-equipped to assume the reins of our businesses in the UK and Ireland," said Mike White, PepsiCo International chairman and chief executive officer. "He's a very strategic thinker with extensive international experience developing markets for a range of consumer products. He also brings extensive first-hand knowledge of both our snack and beverage businesses."

As senior vice president of marketing for PepsiCo International, Amin has been responsible for marketing all PepsiCo brands outside the US and Canada. Previously, he served as senior vice president responsible for marketing international snacks. He joined PepsiCo in 1995 as vice president of marketing for Pepsi-Cola International.

The changeover is expected to be completed by February.
