PepsiCo has announced two leadership appointments that further strengthen the company’s management team.

He will be responsible for overseeing the company’s Global Beverage, Global Snacks and Global Nutrition Groups; its Business & Information Solutions function; Global Procurement; Productivity; Supply Chain; and Corporate Strategy.

Ramon Laguarta, currently President, Developing & Emerging Markets, PepsiCo Europe, has been named CEO, PepsiCo Europe. He will be responsible for overseeing the company’s food and beverage business across Europe and food business in Sub-Saharan Africa. Both Guimaraes and Laguarta will report to PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi.

“PepsiCo enjoys a deep bench of leaders across the company that is enabling us to consistently deliver strong results and create shareholder value,” Nooyi said. “Enderson and Ramon are highly skilled operators who have built impressive performance track records throughout their careers. They bring the right qualities and experiences to their new roles and their leadership will continue to benefit PepsiCo as we execute our strategy to deliver long-term sustainable growth.”
