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.
