He led Frito-Lay’s R&D activities in emerging Asian markets and Australia (2000-2002), their North America health and wellness snacks portfolio (2002-2006) and PepsiCo Europe’s R&D portfolio, with a heavy emphasis on the developing Eastern European region, including Russia (2006-2013). He began his career with Procter & Gamble in the UK as a product developer in the laundry detergent category.

“Rob is an outstanding leader and business partner with passion, technical savvy and extensive experience in both developed and emerging markets. He will bring the voice of our consumers into the successful development of global innovation platforms,” says Mark Clouse. “In addition, Rob is highly experienced in category-led operating models and in navigating through large global organizations.

Robin Hargrove succeeds Jean Spence, who is retiring after nearly 35 years of exemplary service. “Jean is a renowned scientist and terrific business leader who constantly raised the bar on food safety, quality and innovation,” Mark Clouse says. “Jean leaves behind an impressive legacy of technical achievement, but more importantly, she’s always been a great role model and advocate for her people. We wish her the very best.”
