Sr. Director of Global Beverage Innovation
Pepsico Global Beverage Group
Keeping it simple is complicated. Innovating and building brands in large organizations is a difficult endeavor and not for the faint of heart. It’s not enough to have the next big idea – you have to be able to get it through a skeptical organization that is conditioned to seek out and destroy weird things. Whether it’s developing a new manufacturing model for clean-label products or developing a new marketing approach for an existing brand, it’s complicated and difficult to get simple ideas through the system.
