PURCHASE, N.Y. — Tom Greco has been named to the new role of executive vice-president of sales for North America Beverages at PepsiCo, Inc.
"As we work toward the close of our pending bottler transaction with P.B.G. (Pepsi Bottling Group) and P.A.S. (PepsiAmericas, Inc.), we have an opportunity to reorganize our North American beverage selling organization for increased speed, efficiency and greater innovation," said Massimo d’Amore, chief executive officer of PepsiCo Americas Beverages. "Taking our North America beverage selling organizations and uniting them under a transformational leader with a proven track record is the right thing to do, and it’s the right time to do it. Tom is uniquely and extraordinarily well-prepared to drive these capabilities."
Mr. Greco has been with PepsiCo since 1986 and has led PepsiCo’s U.S. sales organization since 2006.
