After 1.5 years in the Pepsi Lipton Joint Venture, I would like to announce that Firuza Khaltaeva has accepted a role as NAPIM CFO based in Bangkok. She will stay with us until end of this year to ensure a smooth year-end close for PL AMENA.
Firuza has had a great impact in the JV during her period in AMENA Pepsi Lipton by leading a further increased focus on profitability and helping develop our Finance function.
Please join me in wishing Firuza all the best in her new role. It is a fantastic opportunity for her, and a great example of the JV offering accelerated development for talents on their parent company career paths. I would personally like to thank Firuza for everything she has contributed to the JV.
