Director, Global Partnership Solutions, PepsiCo
Maggie has over 15 years of experience developing and managing programs and public-private partnerships designed to serve vulnerable populations. In 2016, Maggie left the non-profit sector and came to PepsiCo to direct a shared value global public-private-partnership strategy for PepsiCo's Public Policy / Government Affairs shop. She works across business units to develop partnership interventions aimed at creating social impact, while at the same time mitigating risk and driving business for the company.
In her work in the non-profit sector, Maggie engaged with the corporate sector to develop shared value solutions – intended to create value and impact for communities, corporations, organizations and individuals. While at AARP Foundation, she led the Hunger Impact team’s nutrition incentive portfolio, including nutrition incentive and food Rx programs.
Most notably, Maggie developed and ran Fre$h Savings, an innovative public-private partnership with UnitedHealthcare, Kroger, farmers markets, and USDA that provided monetary incentives for SNAP consumers to incentivize the purchase and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Prior to that, she led the development of AARP Foundation’s first competitive grant making program, and managed the local activation related to AARP’s Drive to End Hunger partnership with NASCAR and Hendrick Motorsports, coordinating food and fund drives to benefit local hunger relief organizations, providing millions of meals in communities with high rates of food insecurity.
