Mike joined Pepsico 9 years ago and worked in various role in Commercialization NA for Quaker Oats, Gatorade and Tropicana. As an Accolade expert, Mike moved to the Pepsi Lipton JV to support the Portfolio Management team 1.5 years ago. During that time, Mike created the innovation database and reporting tool, supporting project reporting and prioritization.
