PepsiCo celebrates its heroes
What makes PepsiCo great? It’s the people who put their energy, hard work and diligence in everything they do. These are our real faces; our Heroes. We’ve brought the stories of five PepsiCo associates to you, so you can witness firsthand how they nurture their dreams and aspirations.
Sanam Sheikh made the bold move from a career in HR after 16 years, and stepped into a core commercial role. Today, she handles the key accounts and trade marketing portfolios and oversees a team that helps build our business, both in foods as well as beverages. She is constantly challenged – but thoroughly enjoys the work.
Khadija Muzaffar was a curious young girl, who took a keen interest in the electrical equipment which her brothers used to work on. Nine years ago, she joined PepsiCo as a process operator; today, she is PepsiCo Pakistan’s first female Site Expert Trainer. She continues to climb up the ladder and is changing her and her family's life in the process.
Sara Naeem joined PepsiCo as a Management Trainee, and in no time, her passion for environmental sustainability found a home. She got the chance to work on various projects that are helping us achieve critical global sustainability goals, related to our Performance with Purpose agenda. Today, she is on a location-free assignment, working on projects that have a global impact.
Muhammad Waseem was one of the first PepsiCo staff members who joined the snacks sales team, when it was formed in 2005. Over a span of 13 years, Waseem grew from a Level 1 employee, into his current Level 8 role as Zonal Sales Manager for Peshawar. After seeing his stellar results, he was awarded the Chairman’s Ring of Honor.
Finally, Maqsood Jan, our potato farmer in the picturesque Yasin Valley of Gilgit Baltistan, was the first farmer who was brought on to grow potatoes in that region. Years later, he is a mentor to over 30 other farmers and has improved his standard of living.
These stories not only represent the true values of the organization but also show how our talented team makes stringent efforts to ensure that the organization works in synchronization to bring you the products our consumers love. We are so grateful to these staff members - our Heroes - and hope you are just as inspired by their stories.
