Nooyi has worked with the company for 24 years, spending the last 12 years as its CEO. "Laguarta was also elected to the company's Board of Directors, effective October 3rd".

He noted that, under Nooyi, PepsiCo expanded its portfolio of "Good for You" and "Better for You" options from about 38 per cent of revenue in 2006 to about 50 per cent in 2017, while simultaneously nearly tripling the company's investments in research and development to expand more nutritious offerings and minimize its environmental impact.
