PepsiCo has filled the position of UK & Ireland marketing director for juice brands with the in-house appointment of Jenni Dill.

Dill will move from New York, where she acts as marketing director for PepsiCo's Gatorade brand. She has also worked in PepsiCo marketing roles in her home country Australia.

The role will involve overseeing the brand development of Tropicana and PJ Smoothies, which was re-launched in May with new flavours and a fresh design.

Dill replaces Will Ghali who was appointed marketing director for Cobra Beer in July. He is scheduled to take up his new role at the end of this month.
