Massive Stewardship Fail – PepsiCo CEO Tells Trump Supporters to Take Their Business Elsewhere…

This will not end well for shareholders of stocks in PepsiCo.  Macy’s business model collapsed after they took a similarly adversarial position toward candidate Donald Trump in 2015.  Now that Donald Trump has won the presidency, PepsiCo is following the same path as Macy’s.

Business organizations, and various boards of directorship, who hire these insufferable political activists within their corporations, are fools for allowing their shareholders to be put at risk by their Chief Executive Officers.

Trust me on this (we follow these impacts), regardless of whether or not you agree or disagree with Indra Nooyi sell any Pepsico stock asap.  If you have a 401K find out if it’s invested in PepsiCo and see if you can find a way out of it.

(Via Yahoo News) PepsiCo’s CEO said the election of Donald Trump as president was terrifying her employees.

“I had to answer a lot of questions from my daughters, from our employees. They were all in mourning,” PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi told Andrew Ross Sorkin at The New York Times’ DealBook conference on Thursday.

“Our employees were all crying,” she said.

“And the question that they’re asking, especially those who are not white, ‘Are we safe?’ Women are asking, ‘Are we safe?’ LGBT people are asking, ‘Are we safe?’ I never thought I would have to answer those questions.”

After congratulating Trump for his success, Nooyi, who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, said everyone in the US needed assurance of their safety.

“What we heard was election talk,” she said.  Nooyi also said she was disgusted more generally by the language that has been used to discuss women in recent months.   (read more with video)

Forbes has additional quotes:

[…]  “Forget about the Pepsi brand. How dare you talk about women that way,” Nooyi said on Thursday morning, referring to comments Trump made on the campaign trail.  “If we don’t nip this in the bud it is going to be a lethal force in society,” Nooyi added (read more)

      My husband read the article too and said that no where in the article did Indra Nooyi tell Trump supporters to take their business elsewhere.

      There are a lot of snowflakes running around claiming their feelings are hurt, including this woman describing some of her employees, but as head of a company this woman did not tell us to take our business elsewhere (at least not in the article linked).

        …and not in the video either.

        I do like the way that Yahoo re-arranged her comments though, so that the most “neutral” sounding comments came at the end of the article, as though she was advocating for support of our President-Elect “The process of democracy happened,” she said. “We just need to let life go on.” <- she said that at the very beginning of the interview.

        Other notes from the video (forgive inacurracies due to my paraphrasing):
        abt6min mark:
        the interviewer brought up the Trump’s women comments, the article made it seem like she brought it up.

        7min
        q: health/climate change/water
        a: we didn’t do it for trump, we believe it anyway. recycling plastic, using less water, also saves money. We’re just saying we’re going to spend money/earn it a different way. I don’t care who is the white house, we are operating the way we think a company should be operated.

        10
        nooyi talks about working on making the products more healthy, basic ingredients, wants customers to be healthy.

        11
        q: soda tax, thoughts?
        a: soda tax is fix budget issues, it’s not about helping people be healthy. I want to make soda healthy. Everyone loves bubbles, everyone likes caffeine, it’s the sugar that’s the problem. We’ve found problems with the artificial sweeteners, so we are going to re-train your palette to just like less sugar.

        13: taxes (I started zoning out, this was getting ridiculous, she was speaking about obesity and stuff)

        Hopefully, all of those came through with decent formatting.

        PS I REALLY hate it when the interviewer’s response to an answer is “look, I’m just asking the question” what is WITH people refuising to take responsibility? Even for words coming out of their mouths? and why haven’t we replaced these warm-blooded robots with ACTUAL robots?

        PPS I feel like this interview was a bit of a set-up, the interviewer brought up the most damaging topics that she talked about.

        They did not necessarily mean an actual statement, but actions that expressed that sentiment. She obviously hates Trump and, by association, Trump supporters. If you can’t manage to boycott them, don’t. The rest of us will struggle along without you and your husband. I love my country far more than ANY lousy PepsiCo product and can live fine without them. I’ll save money, be in better health, and find new and likely better things and products to replace them. Her statements were lies. She is an ultra liberal! I am not!

    Ok, where in the article did she say that she wanted Trump supporters to take their business elsewhere? It did state that she congratulated him on his win and in the video/article attachment she said that going forward that we all need to work together. Of course I think her statements are ridiculous and borderline childish, but the article title is misleading- the liberal community is heinous enough without making false statements about what they say and do- that’s their angle.

    “Are we safe?” Really? REALLY? If conservatives had reacted in 2008 and 2012 like the liberals are reacting now, the media would have cast us as delusional nut jobs with no grasp on reality. No you have Li deals literally crying like babies because the people of America stood up and said “enough is enough”. You act as if this is the end of the world. Like Trump sent out lynching crews for all non-whites. Unless you’re here illegally, you have nothing to be concerned about. If you are here illegally, well…that’s on you now isn’t it. Actions have consequences. The liberals need to stop acting all high and mighty and show a little humility once in awhile. You lost this round just like we lost the last two. The only difference is in 2008, we all woke up and went to work. Now you guys are out there destroying your cities through protest (read riot) and blaming it on Trump. Grow up.

    Pepsi replied back to my email, telling them that I won’t be buying anymore Pepsi products or their other brands because she is unfairly criticizing our great president elect . They must be feeling the squeeze… here’s the reply, sorry it’s so long:

    “Dear Ron,
    Thank you for writing.

    One of the truths that emerged from this election is that the mainstream media often fails to present a straightforward account of current events.

    Unfortunately, the coverage of Ms. Nooyi’s recent comments reflects this. Some media outlets chose to present her remarks in a fashion that captured neither the spirit of her message nor the context in which they were given. For example, you would never know from the headlines that the very first thing she did when the topic of the election came up was to congratulate the President-elect Trump. She also highlighted three primary points of his agenda.

    The following are excerpts from the discussion that provide a more complete view of her statements.

    “First of all, I want to congratulate President-elect Donald Trump.”
    “We will all come together and unify the country.”
    “At some point, we’re going to have to pick up the big issues of technological unemployment, global trade, immigration — all of which needs reform.”

    Separately, the morning after the election, Ms. Nooyi sent a letter to PepsiCo employees making the following points:

    “Yesterday, across this country, Americans turned out in record numbers to make their voices heard. I want to congratulate President-elect Donald Trump on his victory, and I wish him all the best as he begins the work of stewarding this country in the months and years ahead.”
    “I do hope that starting today, we can begin the process of healing, the process of overcoming the divisions that have been exposed during this campaign. I hope that starting today, we can refocus on the work of forging a partnership with one another to build our common future.”
    “We are, first and foremost, Americans. We are, first and foremost, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, who want a better life for ourselves and our families. And the only way of ushering in that better life, the only way of moving forward as a country, is by walking together, hand-in-hand.”

    The coverage by mainstream media, while it may have made for clickable headlines, misrepresented Ms. Nooyi’s views.

    I believe her comments were a very cynical ploy to appeal to their core demographics (teens, millennials and Hispanics) (see http://marketrealist.com/2014/11/understanding-soft-drink-industrys-key-markets/) in response to a four percent drop in Pepsico’s stock in the two days following the election. Note the election was 11/8, when Pepsico stock was at a 52 week high of $108.72. Alas, it kept dropping after her comments and I predict the decline will be come more precipitous as she figures out that the people who made teens one of her key demographics are their parents, half of whom (statistically) supported Trump.

    I guess I missed the part of her(CEO) suggesting not to support Trump also. I re-listened to it several times. Not saying she didn’t, just that I didn’t draw that conclusion. I agree with josamky who works for Pepsi bottling. There are many jobs on the line here, let’s be more careful. Appreciated ron (11-14-16) sharing his response from Pepsi. Is it a typical “form letter” to CYA? Do we really know? If it is, it can be utilized effectively against them. I worked 20 years as a Dept Manager in a small family owned grocery store.(They had 5 stores & in business 60+ years) I also worked 12 years(simultaneously) for ACL Nielsen Mkt Research. One thing I can assure you, is business practices are taken very seriously! I realize that many are quick to “strike back” because of being on “the defense” for President Trump. However let us be more thoughtful of the effectiveness of the actions taken.
