獨家:百事拉美區新掌門人——又一位全球最具影響力的商界女性

柯問思(Beth Kowitt) 2019年03月21日

百事的主要業務部門已經多年沒有女性掌門,如今這一局面被打破。

去年,盧英德辭去百事公司(PepsiCo)首席執行官一職,結束了12年的掌門生涯,也提醒人們這個令人沮喪的事實:能夠擠進美國企業最高層的女性屈指可數。她在去年10月離職后,《財富》美國500強企業中的女性首席執行官的人數減少到24人。

在盧英德卸任后,食品飲料巨頭百事公司高層中的女性的身影少之又少。公司六大業務部門沒有一個由女性掌管,這種情況已經持續多年。

但在3月18日上午,盧英德的繼任者龍嘉德改變了這種狀況——他提拔寶拉·桑蒂利出任百事拉美地區的首席執行官。拉美地區生意價值74億美元,地區首席執行官直接向龍嘉德匯報。

在龍嘉德于本月月初向員工發送的國際婦女節內部電子郵件中,這個決定已經有跡可循?!敦敻弧冯s志看到,該郵件的部分信息包括:“我們在做每一件事時,都在尋求變得更快、更強、更好,因此我們也在思考如何讓女性在我們里里外外的成功中發揮更大的作用。我們可以提拔更多女性進入高管層,變得更強;也可以賦予女性參與我們產業鏈的權力,變得更好?!?/p>

桑蒂利之前就參與拉美地區的運營,上一職位是百事墨西哥食品公司的總經理,該公司營業收入達40億美元。1992年以來,她就一直在桂格麥片(Quaker Oats)擔任領導職務,因為桂格被百事收購而加入百事。她是消費品行業的老兵,還曾經在金寶湯(Campbell Soup)和家樂氏(Kellogg)任職。

桑蒂利接任的是拉克斯曼·納拉希姆漢的工作,后者最近被任命為百事的全球首席商務官?,F任拉丁美洲首席商務官的羅伯托·馬丁內斯升任桑蒂利原來的職位,并向她匯報。

桑蒂利獲得擢升前不到兩周,科爾士百貨(Kohl’s)的首席執行官米歇爾·加斯才剛剛加入百事董事會。(財富中文網)

When Indra Nooyi stepped down as CEO of PepsiCo last year after a 12-year run, it was a depressing reminder of how few women make it to the highest levels of corporate America. Her departure in October depleted the ranks of female Fortune 500 CEOs to a mere 24.

Nooyi’s exit from the snacking and beverage giant also highlighted the dearth of women among PepsiCo’s senior leadership. Of its six business segments, none are run by women, nor have they been for years.

But on March 18 morning, Nooyi’s successor, Ramon Laguarta, changed that by promoting Paula Santilli to CEO of PepsiCo’s Latin America operation, a $7.4 billion business, which reports directly to him.

It was a move that Laguarta foreshadowed earlier this month in an internal email sent to employees on International Women’s Day. Part of the message, viewed by Fortune, reads: “As we seek to become Faster, Stronger, and Better in everything we do, we’re thinking about how women can play a greater role in our success, internally and externally. This includes our efforts to become Stronger by elevating more women into senior management roles, along with our efforts to become Better by empowering women to participate in our supply chain.”

Santilli came up through PepsiCo’s Latin America operation and was most recently president of PepsiCo Mexico Foods, a $4 billion business. She came to PepsiCo through its acquisition of Quaker Oats, where she held leadership positions since 1992. She’s a consumer goods industry vet, also having spent time at Campbell Soup and Kellogg.

Santilli is taking over the job from Laxman Narasimhan, who was recently named global chief commercial officer of PepsiCo. Roberto Martinez, currently chief commercial officer for Latin America, is being promoted into Santilli’s old role and will report to her.

Santilli’s promotion comes less than two weeks after Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass was named to PepsiCo’s board.
