PepsiCo, Inc. has announced that it has appointed David Flavell as executive vice president (EVP), general counsel and corporate secretary.
Flavell, who is PepsiCo's current senior vice president (SVP), deputy general counsel and chief compliance & ethics officer, will replace Dave Yawman, who is departing PepsiCo after more than 22 years to pursue other interests.
Flavell joined PepsiCo in 2011 and, in addition to his role as senior vice president (SVP), deputy general counsel and chief compliance & ethics officer, he has served in various senior legal roles at the company including as general counsel for Frito-Lay North America and the AMEA and Latin America businesses.
Flavell will begin his new role as executive vice president (EVP), general counsel and corporate secretary on March 1, and Yawman will stay on in the interim to ensure a smooth and efficient transition.
PepsiCo CEO and chairman Ramon Laguarta stated, "On behalf of everyone at PepsiCo, including our board of directors, I want to sincerely thank Dave not only for his years of judicious guidance that steered our company through many complex issues, but also for his unwavering dedication to his colleagues and to doing what is right. Dave will always be an honored member of our PepsiCo family, and we know his steadfast values, innate curiosity, and unassailable character will serve him well wherever his journey takes him next.
"At the same time, we have no doubt that David Flavell is the ideal person to take over this important role. David is a highly respected leader with a decade of experience at PepsiCo, including as general counsel for different businesses and geographies, and the leader of our compliance and ethics team. In each position, he has demonstrated a firm commitment to upholding and modelling the values we stand for as a company, and I look forward to working with him even more closely in the years ahead to make PepsiCo a faster, stronger, better company."
