Hispanic Business at PepsiCo with Esperanza Teasdale
"Let's talk about the professional path and You are now the vp gm of the hispanic business unit for pepsico. What was your path to get there. Yeah i am studied engineering for college. So i was math and science person in high school and my physics teacher mr adrian nouvelle who actually was so important to my life that he came to my wedding by way and kind of steered me into the space helped me with College application letters recommendation. And so i studied engineering before. You're so i've been in a manufacturing environment for awhile. Bump steel toed shoes uniform union arment. And that's really where i started my career At the same time my company was so gracious that They paid for my mba. So i went to Uconn in stamford connecticut to take classes at night and really got more exposed to concepts of business management marketing research and just really loved it and so then when i asked for a new gig they said finance or sales and unlike okay sales and sales and all i need to go into marketing because marketing guides what we're doing in sales and i think they could do a better job and so i was lucky that my General manager at the time created a job and that was that was the beginning of my marketing career. So very classically trained at unilever and then pepsi around marketing from like you know the analysts all the way through up till now you know a vp gm. Which i'm really proud and excited about and And yeah i feel like i'm in a really great role. Right can make a big impact on the careers of our of our folks drive to mercy inclusion and drive the business results faster than general market because the population is growing so quick so and There's just so many things that are benefiting from being in this role that That i'm really grateful about. But that's kind of the the journey really. It was not linear at all Did not start off wanting to and marketing that side of my brain and that analytical process orientation i think does just a market yeah i think increasing edge to a home maybe ten years ago when you made the original switch i think today it's much more analytically rigorous than it has been in the past But yeah no. That's that's phenomenal. And i've had a few folks on the show. That have transitioned from engineer to sales marketing. And it's it's funny the way you went through that transition in how you described it because a few of them have described it similarly meaning they. They went from engineering the sales and then they realized my words not yours. How bad marketing screws it up. And they need to go help marketing. Try to figure that out because it it comes down to the sales folks at some level whether their marketing is getting it right or not so. It's an interesting learning curve and A pathway that. I've heard before. So what would what drove what drove the creation of the hispanic business unit. And how are you guys thinking about like measuring success. That's a that's a big scene seemingly to me as an outsider like it seems like a big big thing like a big shift in how you're organized. Yeah this was created. I believe in twenty eighteen by out. Carrie who at the time was still pepsi. Co when of are really incredible leaders kirk. Tanner who's our ceo and My current boss. Greg lyons our cmo and they just really realize that you know the hispanic Business is untapped potential and if we have a fixed mindset about it and we're not going to capture that growth and So what's the do different because in the past. Yeah we had a multicultural team. That definitely had A role but didn't necessarily have ownership and so the do different had to be to create an organization that was dedicated to this and have the right resources. And that's what they did and And it's been pretty successful. Ever since the the key measures to the other question you had really is around. Hey can we help grow faster with hispanic consumer than the general market. Can we help build equity with this fan of consumer and And those are some key metrics we look at and so far. We've we've been We've been pretty pretty successful doing that.

"SportsCenter all night on ESPN Radio and the ESPN AB Sirius X M. Channel 80. I am Jim basketball those stories ahead, but we get it started with momentum mounting towards a change in our nation's capital, Nike, FedEx and Pepsico received letters. Asking those companies to sever ties with team unless it changes his name. It's about money. It's always been about money, and that's the reality of the situation. President and CEO of FedEx holds a minority stake in the Redskins. So that seems significant as well. I think it's unlikely because it's made personal like you could do that people would like you. But why would God Washington Redskins announcing Friday they are reviewing their team named Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league has had ongoing discussions with team owner Daniel Snyder. Adam Schefter reporting a change of the Redskins name is now considered likely on Thursday. FedEx which has naming rights to the stadium under a $205 million deal that runs through 2025 Requested the team change the name sponsors Nike Pepsi Co. In Bank of America, all releasing statements saying they welcomed the news that the team is reviewing a name change. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless, Stephen A. Smith, Louis, Riddick and Dan Graziano on the variables that Daniel Snyder faces everyone you talk to at this point expects that there will be a change. I think it would be shocking. If this team ever played another game under its current nickname. You do not conduct a thorough review. And then reached the conclusion that Oh, you know what? It's fine. We'll just stick with it. So I think we're in a situation here where external forces have acted on Dan Snyder in a way that he did not foresee when he used to say words like never. He's hearing from major sponsors. Obviously, that cuts right at his bottom line. He's hearing from the commissioner, and obviously, that has to be A significant factor in all of this. So at this point, I think the next thing you're going to hear our that Washington has decided to change its name, and then you're going to start to hear some candidates for what the new name will be. It's the power of big business is what it is. Look, this is the one thing that all owners and then specifically in this case is the one thing that they understand. You understand things that negatively impact the bottom line. They don't like those types of things. So when you have investors who own assets in the companies that are putting pressure on Washington and on dancing Or to the tune of over $600 billion worth of assets invested in the places like FedEx and Nike and Pepsico. And they say, Look, we want to see a change. Otherwise, we want you pulling out of your sponsorship with said entity that you're going to listen, cause that's gonna negatively impact your bottom line. And this is something that Dan doesn't want to something. No owner once, and even though this doesn't affect the other owners, per se directly, it does affect them indirectly because he needs to make sure that that franchise is as valuable as it possibly could be. So he needs to go ahead and get this done. You need to get it done in a hurry. People were startled by this news and called it massive because you have a sponsor of this magnitude, calling on the team to change the name. There is a sense around the league that this might actually be the thing that gets it done. You mentioned Dan Snyder, the team owner, has been adamant in the past that he won't change the name for a couple of reasons. One is Good, old fashioned stubbornness. And the other is the idea that fans still show up at games still buy merchandise because they feel a connection to that name to the team's history. So It would be a big deal for Snyder to do it. It might require approval of the of the other owners, a change of a team name that would affect merchandise sales. Etcetera might require league approval as well. They are worth $3.1 billion As of right now, according to Forbes magazine, There are top 14 franchise in all of sports. It is a very exclusive club. That is the National Football League. He had given up ownership and he ain't giving up any dollars that he doesn't have to. He gonna keep his money, He gonna keep the franchise And if he has to submerge his stubbornness, all right, if somebody because I know friends of his who will figuratively and affectionately speaking, slapped him upside his head and knock some sense into him if that doesn't work. I don't think that's gonna be required. I think that Daniel Snyder is going to change this name. I predict that it's going to probably be before this season begins. Well, PT I not so sure. Yes, I think it's gone. I think the review is phony foot dragging nonsense. It's a way to stall and buy time because I believe is, some reports have had it and by reports, I mean, also people in this community where you and I live with her whether Washington football team plays there are people familiar with Dan Snyder is thinking, who say Hey, is that budget at this moment, He thinks he's not going to budge, and that's what I believe. You know, you and I have had some text this morning and I told you I don't believe Snyder is thinking anything. But this team is going to be called the Redskins. He's gonna pull out some study and it's gonna have some stuff on it. Which says people don't mind which is always what he's done. You talk about developing story. Let me give you some developments in the last hour. Adam Schefter has said he doesn't think Washington's football team will be known as the Redskins this season and any punctuated it. Schefter just did with the quote. No way. Mark Masking writing for The Washington Post says the name will be changed quote potentially before 20 twenties season. Mark masking. I mean, these guys are all over this and you and I You're familiar with people who are familiar with the thinking of the owner. So, Tony, I think it's done. But do I think he has given up? Do I think he's just going to be talked into this by the commissioner or other owners? No, I don't. Okay, it's over..

"Shows not just me that some lowering profitability so we work really hard in the state of California to couldn't a legally binding closet showed It's someone is prosecuted for that type of behavior. They do lose control. They're controlling shares. So we felt that was really important. we were proud to release that language On a piece on our DOT COM blog. So anyone can use it It was an expensive endeavor so somebody uses it. That's for sure but our goal again. It's always be looking out for our business owners even if it's through our own practices out but this Elizabeth seemed to me that you actually made something.

How was that received when you went out for venture in California well You know it's hard not.

So why would venture companies WanNa put this at risk because one in the early two thousands Angel Investor? There was this old joke that said that any rights. The you have left in the agreement with a venture firm is really just a typographical error. Why would they WANNA give you any rights in this area? Is it because they also believe that the time is that we've really got to change the behavior and this was important to get behind that? But what was interesting is I found that a lot of LP that venture funds as well as managing partners are trying to figure out how to better train their Fund managers Whether it's our behavior whether it is Ensuring are being proactive and this actually helped many of them Put an extra layer of accountability and and the reason that's important is the amount of legal issues that these BC's have gone through For the baby of their employees You know they don't WanNa do that either right.

The brand launched a campaign called the do nited states intending to celebrate the uniqueness of all fifty states is it designed bottle specific to each state and promised prizes to soda drinkers who collected all fifty but it made one glaring geographical error over on one map. It mistakenly assigned ownership of the upper peninsula to wisconsin for the record. The upper peninsula belongs to michigan.

I think they've broken up and that's what caused him down the spiral. I don't I don't know. And I'm not point any fingers. I don't know her name, but clearly was a bad influence on them does Astor. You don't take down a champion in his prime. Tell him not to eat seventy-two hotdogs, like it's not healthy for you or something like fuck you crazy, right? Pure madness. You don't have his best interest in mind. Ors is the general public. So I hope for the sake of him as the athlete in the man. He never gets engaged again. It gets married or finds happiness or has kids, I wanna champion out on these streets who's who's crossing the seventy dog Mark at every go. So we'll see. We'll see. Now, somebody gets to the revolutionary figure of the day showy we shall go. It's been weird day. So let's capital with a weird revolutionary figure. It was a woman who was named marijuana Pepsi. Okay. That was her legal government name that her parents, gave her was marijuana, Pepsi cO and. It's marijuana Pepsi Jackson Hole name. Okay. There was this all got started by one guy tweeting out my high school basketball coach told us once that he had a student name marijuana Pepsi Jackson, who went on to become a super super successful and whatever they found her today like this guy put out this tweets and homegirl had been an urban legend for like fifteen years, this high school and everybody else. Nobody believed his story. And he goes on Twitter tweets about it, and they found marijuana Pepsi Jackson, and she does have a PHD. Dr. She completed a dissertation on what black names. My gosh. Yes. She's black, and she said, look, I can overcome my name and, and do it. But here's here's what happens when you name a child something is difficult this, and then when went onto describe her circumstances of what it's like growing up with the name marijuana. Imagine explaining that you're entire life because that's starts real young. I don't even know if you get name, a kid, marijuana, these days, the teachers wouldn't you can do whatever you want these days, actually these days. A teacher would announce marijuana to the classroom every single day. Right. If the family would get offended then. Yeah, you have to, I bet you, they probably went by Pepsi. That's a guess guess either way to overcome a name like that your entire life and go on to be doctors pretty spectacular. So, yeah, that's crazy, man. I mean. I mean. College application which your name marijuana, I guarantee you one of the admissions people call and were like, hey man, I don't know this is a joke. But it says marijuana Pepsi's your as your name that you're applying to college with can you confirm that or deny that? And then once it was confirmed. I bet you, they were like oh, she got a digger now because there's, we can get sued if we don't take somebody with marijuana now. Yeah. Good on her man. She's a, she's a doctor Levin. That's crazy, man. What a crazy story revolutionary, and I was thinking about it was like why wasn't this solves all these years ago? Like all these people thought it was alleging you didn't have Twitter, you know, shit like this. Like you can't just throw out random things like this. And then find people you can't now fifteen years ago. And we just found Mickey poke in what under two minutes seconds. I just read his statement to the world. That's how it goes. Now. Yeah..

"The head of the food and beverage conglomerate PepsiCo, and she's talking about women. They don't like to crunch too loudly in public and they don't lick their fingers. Generously. Those were the comments that got everybody excited this week about her company. Introducing what potentially great new product that would be Doritos for women. Yes. Lady does very well. So excited these beautiful dream. Andrew new uses the CEO of Pepsi cO. She did a podcast in which he talked about female preferences in regard to snack food like their product Doritos. And she said women don't want crops in their hands. And they don't want a loud crunching and more than anything. They don't want chips that dorito splaine to them. So everybody was excited because everybody was like, oh my gosh. Deputies. Introducing lady Doritos Doritos for her. But it turns out not to be true PepsiCo put out a statement. They said they're already Doritos for ladies. They're called Doritos. So Peter, here's one thing. They could do. Yes. Doritos are triangle shaped they are those of you who like me I like to get the big bag and finish it in one sitting. Yes, what happens to the big one that grab?

"Company. He also made some decisions that some critics would point at later as being very questionable. So for example, back in early nineteen eighty five at CAS, he got into a conversation with somebody else and that someone convinced him that Commodores line of portable computers, LCD screens, which they were showing off at ES was going to be terribly unprofitable. They were just going to end up languishing in the market, and the company was gonna lose money as a result for really backing a portable computer with an LCD screen and Smith took it the heart, any cancelled the line of computers. So while they showed one off like a prototype over at ES, it would never become an actual Commodore product. Here's where people got really upset. The person who told him that it wasn't going to be profitable was the CEO of Tandy Tandy slash radio shack. That was the company that was making its own line. Portable computers. So essentially Tandy was able to talk a competitor out of launching a product that would have gone toe to toe with their own products. And a lot of people said that Smith let a competitor sabotages owned business, Marcia Smith began to cut costs at the end of nineteen eighty five because Commodore was not going to be profitable unless they were able to trim a whole lot of the expenses that included cutting payroll by forty, five percent Commodore suffer losses in all, but the final quarter of nineteen eighty five and nine at the last quarter, it posted a one million dollar profit that was not enough to set off the losses from the rest of the year and had a lot of debt to pay off as well. So over the course of the fiscal year of nineteen eighty five Commodore lost two hundred thirty, seven million dollars clearly that was going to affect Amiga as well as a division of the company and Commodore struggles in nineteen eighty five. Spilled over into nineteen eighty six. The company made the decision to skip both CAS shows that year. Remember the Consumer Electronics Show which these days has one show a year. It's in January, it's in Las Vegas in the United States there. Some international shows too, but that's the one big one in the US back in these days. It had two shows one in the winter one the summer. Well, Commodore, skip both of them and also skipped Comdex, which was a huge computer trade show at that time, and it always maintained very large presence during these shows. So it's absence was notable on the executive side over in the corporate section of Commodore, chief operating officer. Thomas Rattigan was preparing to move into the role of CEO with Marshall Smith stepping down this had been the plan all along. This was not a sudden decision. There was a long term strategy, and so rather than had been groomed to become the CEO of. Madore and he was given a five year contract that would expire in nineteen ninety one. And he assumed the role of Commodore CEO in March nineteen eighty six. And it was down to him to turn Commodore into a truly profitable company, which was going to require some really tough decisions. Rattigan had previously served as the CEO of Pepsi Co. international, which was a pretty interesting move because apple had previously hired away Pepsi CEO John Sculley in nineteen eighty three. So now you had to former leaders of Pepsi leading personal computer companies that were in competition with each other. Rattigan would lead three rounds of layoffs and the first round targeted people who are described as layabouts. So I'm guessing these folks who either were not particularly productive at their jobs or they held jobs that did not seem to contribute to the bottom line of Commodore in any real way. So it was the easiest cut to make and probably was the one. That was making the most sense from a business standpoint, the second round of layoffs involved, cutting the people who were working on what we're now irrelevant or underperforming projects. So red again would discontinue things like the pet or p. t. computer line which had been introduced way back in nineteen seventy seven..

"We are getting more information about President Trump's proposal to potentially allow companies to report earnings every six months rather than quarterly on a quarterly basis President Trump. Says the idea comes from, outgoing Pepsi co chief exec Indra new Ye who attended last week's Bedminster business dinner so that is where the idea came from joining me now I'm very pleased to say as Arthur Levitt he is the former chairman of. The US securities and Exchange Commission and I believe the longest serving ever. SEC chair I also is. A current member Of the board at Bloomberg LP. Also, is an advisor to the primanti financial Arthur. Thank you so much for being with me today what was your, reaction to President Trump's tweet this morning about allowing. Companies to report every six months I don't like it I think that investors have much better results when they're better informed not Westbam US capital. Markets with their quarterly reporting of generated higher returns. Enters as a result attract a lot more capital than those international capital markets with semi annual reporting In the instance of Enron they reported, serious problems in the, third quarter of two thousand and one in that earning call and ten q File for bankruptcy squeak of December in two thousand. Two with semi annual reporting, investors wouldn't, have received the bad news. From October two thousand and two, by which time the company was broke but otherwise you could say you know it doesn't doesn't make sense so Come. In Coming from your background at the Go ahead Arthur Coming from your background. At the SEC I'm wondering what the process would be like that it could potentially undergo in order to. Make this, happen I mean how long would a study? Like this take and could they just sort of implementation and the near term I think he is likely to take at least six months Don't believe they could do this virtually overnight I, think this is a very hot button issue and I think it will raise a, lot of attention, not just in corporate America, but in academia which is very concerned about Our information gets to the, public and when, they can act on it Do you think that we did move. To a six month reporting period the US markets have become less liquid Yes I think that they would become? Less liquid but more important than that We would have less information on which to base decisions and I think a market without information is not as nice nearly as quarter? As, good as a market where formation is readily available on a regular basis I have. To think that some people believe? That this was a good thing that this would reduce short termism among the c. suite executives and that, people would be looking more longer term for business strategies. That makes sense what do you say to that because there are even some investors who think that this would be better for them over the long term From the perspective of business it would be. Less costly to relax the standards but I honestly believe that the best capital markets are the ones which are the most often report the, most frequently and the argument for more information for individual investors chrome. The argument that. Providing this information is costly to? American business when you are the SEC chair did a lot of executives petition you to make this change No They did. Not I think there is always a certain amount of tension between business and. Regulation And that's certainly existed I was not pressured extensively in. Connection with this change I'm curious to know whether you think that the pendulum has swung. Too far toward deregulating things are how much further would have to swing before you get concerned that were sowing the, seeds for another problem I think there's a specific moment that you. Can point you but clearly deregulation is in the air, and that's not bad I think the pendulum shift as you say but I think we rolled back. Number of things we've made it easier for business in a, number of ways in terms of regulatory context but I. Think going much further than we are now we would do that at the expense of. Investor interest and the greatest danger to our capital markets his lack of transparency in so far as investors are concerned That's why I think we can go so far and really not going any further just real. Quick here I'm curious are you worried about SEC independence here I. Haven't thought of that I think that Agencies are independent have been independent and I think any effort to. Change that would be terrible for our markets I don't guard this as, an urgent threat at this point in time and a lot, of it depends on who's running the commission the. President SEC chair is mindful. Of those risks Yeah I think you're likely to move in that direction aren't they love. It thank you.

"Org, and Sheila welcome to on point. It's nice to be here. Thanks so much for coming in Shilla. This is not a a new problem, but women still make up just eleven percent of the highest paid jobs in corporate America. Eleven percent. Progress remains glacial slow talk about why? Well, if you look at the numbers over time in two thousand and six, when MS new Ye became CEO of Pepsi Co. there were ten women leading fortune five hundred companies and the number peaked around thirty two in two thousand seventeen. And then now it has fallen twenty five percent down to twenty four. So as you as you've already mentioned, that's less. Than five percent of the CEOs of major companies. And this is really disturbing when you look at it in the context of what's happened in other areas of our economy, women have surged into education system. They now earn sixty percent of undergraduate degrees, sixty percent of master's degrees. Forty percent of MBA's are now obtained by women. So there's a real disconnect to there's a sign of a real problem. And you know, part of it has to do with the fact that the women often start off at these companies and they get weeded out before they reach these upper levels where they're in a position to become a CEO and run the company. The weeded out and women rarely get replaced as you've pointed on your article with with other women. You know what? Some are calling this, the sort of savior effects. Even if you've got a president of a woman taking over a major corporation of their replaced. It's it's often with a man. I thought MS new e made some interesting comments about this on the day. She resigned. She said she would have loved for the board to have had. A woman to choose from. But at the end of the day, the board chooses a CEO and there just weren't any women at the company who are ready for the job. And she also complained that some of the female executives she had helped sort of develop and mentor and groom a had been poached away to other companies. But this really points to the fact that you know the, the lack of women at the very top reflects the lack of women at the levels just below the top. I mean, you, you know, becoming a CEO is a long arduous process. It's an incredibly demanding job. You need experience in all different areas of the company. Typically, including international experience, which is something that Indra talked about. That's often hard for women when they have family obligations and husbands with careers. So you know, it's really a sign that you know more needs to be done to to not just hire women in the first place, but to keep them and to make sure they get the experience and the opportunities to put them in position to rise up. And that's just not happening. Talk about the retention, the disconnect, how can get weeded out or poached away. But first, let's let's hear from the outgoing CEO ingenuity, this misses her confronting this sort of age. Old question. Can women really have it all? She was speaking at the twenty fourteen Aspen ideas festival. I don't think women can have it all. I just don't think so. Be pretend we have it all. We pretend we can have it all we plan on lives meticulously so we can be decent pedants. But if you ask daughters, I'm not sure they will say that I've been a good mum. I'm curious your take is part of her stepping aside, partly burnout or she got tired of it. What do you know about her decisions? Her reasons behind the leaving? Well, she's spoken a lot about her somewhat unique, at least in this country family arrangements that allowed her to thrive career wise and have a family. She has two daughters, but she's spoken about how her extended family. I believe her parents or at least her mother were very involved in helping her raise her kids. She. A lot of support and many families in the US don't have that. That is that is more common culturally in certain other countries..
