PepsiCo Inc. has appointed Danny Celoni to the role of CEO for Australia and New Zealand.
Celoni has stepped into the role following the appointment of former CEO Robbert Rietbroek to senior vice-president and general manager of PepsiCo’s Quaker Foods North America business.
Celoni will take on the company's snacks and beverages portfolios, including local brands Smith’s, Red Rock Deli, and Bluebird, and international brands Pepsi, Gatorade, and Doritos.
PepsiCo Asia Pacific president Aadel Garas said Celoni would bring to the role an understanding of Australian and New Zealand retail environments.
”He has been instrumental in the growth of our brands over the past 18 months and is well placed to lead the team as we chart our next chapter, Garas said.
He was previously with Diageo for close to 17 years, before he took on a role as sales director for PepsiCo ANZ 18 months ago.
He will commence the new role immediately.
