PepsiCo Promotes Company Veteran as Senior VP, Investor Relations

PURCHASE, N.Y. -- With a 17-year company track record under his belt, Jamie Caulfield steps into the role of senior vice president, investor relations at PepsiCo. Until recently he served as vice president, mergers and acquisitions.

"I am delighted to be able to name Jamie Caulfield to this vitally important role," CFO Hugh Johnston said in a company statement. "He is a very seasoned leader with a deep understanding of our global business. His breadth of experience across a wide range of financial disciplines -- both at headquarters and in our field operations -- will be extremely valuable as PepsiCo continues to grow and evolve."

PepsiCo promoted the veteran of finance, accounting and investor relations to fill the position previously held by Lynn Tyson. She is leaving the company to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities, according to the company.

"I would also like to thank Lynn for her contributions to our company over more than 13 years," Johnston added. "During her recent tenure with PepsiCo, she has been instrumental in shaping our communications with investors and, in particular, establishing processes to improve our efficiency and effectiveness internally to provide better service externally."

In addition to his role as vice president, mergers and acquisitions, Caulfield's earlier corporate positions at PepsiCo included vice president, investor relations and vice president, financial planning and analysis. He also served as group vice president-field finance and as region finance director at PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America unit.
