CD Glin, president, PepsiCo Foundation
PepsiCo has appointed CD Glin, current VP of the PepsiCo Foundation and global head of philanthropy for PepsiCo, as the Foundation’s president.
Glin will remain head of philanthropy and will report to Roberto Azevedo, chairman of the Foundation and chief corporate affairs officer for PepsiCo.
In his new role, Glin will oversee the Foundation’s commitment towards a more sustainable food system, backed by its three core pillars: food security, safe water access and economic opportunity.
“In recent years we’ve seen significant events including the pandemic, conflict and natural disasters, which have created an abundance of need across the globe,” said Azevedo. “Through CD’s leadership, the PepsiCo Foundation has helped the company meet these moments through a focus on impacting communities, engaging employees and driving corporate purpose and responsibility.”
Glin joined the PepsiCo Foundation in 2021 and has been involved in the launch and growth of various philanthropic initiatives. Under his leadership, the Foundation will also continue its expansion of the $18.2 million She Feeds the World project, which works directly with female farmers in Peru, Egypt and Uganda, with plans to expand to Thailand and Vietnam.
Glin said: “During these challenging times, I’ve been energised and inspired by our incredible associates, our commitment to community as a global company operating locally to positively impact people and the planet. I look forward to continuing my work as president of the Foundation and ensuring we deliver lasting community impact as one of the world’s leading food and beverage companies.”
