Pandey comes from Frito-Lay (a PepsiCo company) in the United States where she has spent the last 11 years in roles that span across marketing, corporate strategy, insights and media. Her latest role was General Manager, Bare Snacks where she created and led an integrated team to build a multiple year growth strategy for the newly acquired business.

Prior to this she was Senior Director, Chief of Staff for the CMO where she was responsible for partnering and supporting the CMO and a marketing department of 250 people. Before her career at PepsiCo Pandey held analyst and equity research roles at Bank of America and Morgan Stanley.
