Visa announced last week that former PepsiCo executive Kelly Mahon Tullier will join the company as executive vice president and deputy general counsel, as well as a member of the company’s executive committee.
Tullier began her career at PepsiCo in 2004, when she joined the company as vice president and general counsel of Frito-Lay. From 2009 to 2011, Tullier served as the senior vice president and general counsel of PepsiCo’s Asia, Middle East and Africa division.
Before joining PepsiCo, Tullier was an associate at the global law office of Texas-based Baker Botts from 1993 to 1996. She received a bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University and a juris doctorate from Cornell Law School. She clerked for Judge Sidney Fitzwater of the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Texas.
She will transition to the role of executive vice president and general counsel on Oct. 1.
“We are thrilled to have Kelly join the Visa team and to create the opportunity for Ellen to guide us through this critical time in the evolution of the payment system,” Visa CEO Charlie Scharf said. “Kelly’s extensive global and broad leadership experience will be a great complement to our outstanding legal team.”
