Frucor Suntory chief consumer officer Cameron Davidson said: “Tania has proven herself as one of the company’s strongest leaders with a hunger to help make drinks better for consumers.”

“There’s everything to play for.”

“I’m really confident in Tania’s ability and passion to take our collaborative partnership with PepsiCo to the next level.”

Bui, who describes herself as a passionate marketer, says the role brings with it a lot of opportunity to reposition Pepsi Max as a modern-day challenger and competitive force in market.
