PepsiCo Appoints Segun Agbaje as Board Member

PepsiCo, Inc. has announced that its Board of Directors has elected Segun Agbaje, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc, as an independent member of its Board.

In a statement Wednesday, PepsiCo said Agbaje, 56, will join the Board and the Audit Committee effective July 15, 2020.

“I am delighted to welcome Segun to the PepsiCo Board,” said PepsiCo Chairman and CEO, Ramon Laguarta.

“Segun is a well-respected and proven business leader with a deep understanding of complex businesses and fast-growing markets, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa where we recently acquired Pioneer Foods as part of our strategy to expand in the region. His experience in business transformation and passion for delivering consumer value will serve PepsiCo well as we continue our journey to be the global leader in convenient foods and beverages by winning with purpose,” Laguarta said.

“We look forward to Segun joining the PepsiCo Board and to the valued global perspective he will add to our team,” said Daniel Vasella, chair of the Board’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
Vasella further said, “His knowledge and experience of embracing and scaling new technologies and critical capabilities will be valuable as we continue to invest in opportunities that create shareholder value and deliver long-term sustainable growth.”

Prior to becoming Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Guaranty Trust Bank plc in 2011, Agbaje, 56, held several positions at the bank after joining in 1991, including Executive Director and most recently Deputy Managing Director from 2002 to 2011.

Previously, Agbaje served as an auditor for Ernst & Young LLP in the United States from 1988 to 1990.

Agbaje also currently serves as a director of MasterCard Advisory Board Middle East and Africa. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of San Francisco.
