PepsiCo has appointed Athina Kanioura as its chief strategy and transformation officer.

She will also hold the position of executive vice president at the Doritos and Walkers crisps snacks owner, reporting to chairman and CEO Ramon Laguarta.

Kanioura was most recently the chief analytics officer and global head of applied intelligence at professional services company Accenture, where she specialised in applying AI and analytics to “drive business value”, according to a statement from the food and beverages giant today (14 September).

Prior to almost 15 years at Accenture, Kanioura previously worked at Unilever, P&G, Philip Morris, Vodafone and BP. 

Laguarta said: “Athina is a highly talented leader who will bring a cross-functional, technology-driven approach to business transformation at PepsiCo. Athina’s hands-on experience helping global consumer packaged goods companies transform their businesses through the use of data and technology solutions will be tremendously valuable.”
