PepsiCo said Wednesday Chief Financial Officer Hugh Johnston will be named to the added position of vice chairman.
Johnston, a 25-year veteran with the food and beverage giant, was named finance chief in 2010. In addition to that role, he's also responsible for the company's global e-commerce organization and its Quaker Foods North America business.
In the vice chairman role, Johnston will also take on oversight of its information technology systems and work to strengthen the company's digital capabilities.
