PepsiCo has signed on
as the Network of Executive Women's third Foundation-level sponsor,
committing $100,000 to the Network and its mission to attract, retain and
advance women in the retail and consumer products industry.
PepsiCo has approximately 285,000 employees worldwide. The food and beverage company has supported
NEW since 2004.
"PepsiCo is passionate and proud to support NEW at the Foundation level,
because NEW’s programs and resources bring our associates together for valuable
professional and personal development,” said Marie Quintana, a Network member
and the firm's vice president for multicultural sales. "NEW is an integral part
of our business and talent development strategies and I have enjoyed many
benefits since I have been associated with the Network.”
As a Foundation
sponsor, PepsiCo will receive exposure at national and regional events
and be able to leverage the Network's engagement opportunities,
educational experiences and other tools to advance its diversity and inclusion
values and strategies.
Purchase, N.Y., PepsiCo generates annual
revenue of nearly $60 billion, 61 percent of which is generated in the United
States and Canada. The company has the world’s largest portfolio of billion‐dollar food and
beverage brands, including 19 different product lines each generating more than
$1 billion in annual retail sales.
PepsiCo’s support of NEW aligns
with the company’s mission to be the world's premier consumer products company
focused on convenient foods and beverages and "to produce financial rewards to
investors as we provide opportunities for growth and enrichment to our
employees, our business partners and the communities in which we operate,”
Quintana said. "As our mission says, ‘in everything we do, we strive for
honesty, fairness and integrity.’”
