Tropicana Brands Group announced that it has appointed Glen Walter as chief executive officer, effective March 2, 2022. The company, a recently formed joint venture between PAI Partners and PepsiCo, markets, innovates, manufactures and distributes premium juice products across North America and Europe.

The joint venture was formed following PAI’s acquisition of Tropicana, Naked, KeVita, Izze and other select juice brands. The acquisition, which closed at the end of January, gives PAI a controlling stake. The company will continue to be headquartered in Chicago.

Walter joins Tropicana from Mondelez International, where he was executive vice president, and president, North America from 2017-2022, delivering four consecutive years of sustainable, profitable growth. He brings to the company a 30-year track record of high performance, executional excellence, and growth mindset leadership across functions in the global food & beverage industry.
