During Zein Abdalla’s tenure at the European the division revenues grew from $7 billion to $14 billion, and he led the transformation of the European portfolio, shifting it towards the higher-growth markets in the region, and along the way also helped PepsiCo become the largest food and beverage company in Russia.

Prior to joining PepsiCo in 2011, Guimaraes served as executive vice president of Electrolux and chief executive officer of its major appliances business for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, based in Belgium.

Guimaraes’ Global Nutrition Group successor will be named shortly. Abdalla and Guimaraes will report to Indra Nooyi, chairman and chief executive of PepsiCo.
