David Page, director of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, will join the board on 20 November, PepsiCo said on Friday. Page is a biology professor at MIT who specialises in genetics research.

Page, 58, led the team credited with mapping the human Y chromosome and is also the founder of the Whitehead Task Force on Genetics & Public Policy.

Page's election brings the total number of directors on PepsiCo's board to 13 and the total number of independent outside directors to 12. The one inside director is Nooyi.

In June, one of the US's largest pension funds reportedly sent a letter to a senior PepsiCo director last month urging the company to put PepsiCo investor Nelson Peltz on the company's board. Peltz is seeking support from fellow shareholders to force PepsiCo to separate its snacks and beverage businesses.
