PepsiCo has announced two new executive employee promotions.
Tom Greco, a 23-year veteran has been appointed to the newly created role of executive vice president of sales for North America beverages. Additionally, Salman Amin, who has led PepsiCo’s business in the UK and Ireland, was named executive vice president sales and marketing at PepsiCo.
Greco began his career with PepsiCo in Canada in 1986, and has held a variety of positions in sales, marketing and general management. Since 2006, he has led PepsiCo’s U.S sales organization, driving the company’s “Power of One” cross-divisional sales strategy. As executive vice president of sales for North American beverages, Greco takes on a new, expanded sales and marketing leadership role.
“As we work toward the close of our pending bottler transaction with PBG and PAS, we have an opportunity to reorganize our North American beverage selling organization for increased speed, efficiency and greater innovation,” said Massimo d’Amore, CEO of PepsiCo Americas Beverages “Taking our North America beverage selling organizations, and uniting them under a transformational leader with a proven track record is the right thing to do, and it’s the right time to do it. Tom is uniquely, and extraordinarily well-prepared to drive these capabilities.”
Amin joined PepsiCo in 1995 and most recently served as president of PepsiCo UK and Ireland, where he led growth with the company’s Walkers snack foods, Quaker breakfast cereals, and Tropicana and Copella fruit juices and smoothies businesses. Prior to this role, Salman was chief marketing officer for PepsiCo International. In his new position, Amin will lead an integrated sales and marketing strategy with PepsiCo’s global customers and drive the company’s international marketing agenda for beverages and foods.
