Carrie Nowicki joined PepsiCo in 2006 from LER’s campus into an HR Leadership Development Program. She’s been a leader in Talent Acquisition for the last 5 years helping PepsiCo to attract, assess and hire the best talent across a variety of businesses and functions including marketing, design, ecommerce, and most recently leading Field Recruitment for the US. Prior to talent acquisition, Carrie did several HR Business Partner roles across PepsiCo’s nutrition brands: Quaker Oats, Tropicana, and Gatorade. Leading HR for the Gatorade brand was definitely a favorite role as a former volleyball player. Carrie has a Masters in Human Resource Management and a Bachelor’s degree in Finance both from University of Illinois. Carrie enjoys working in a function dominated by women because at home she is outnumbered! She is based in Chicago with her husband and four sons. Although she is quite proud of her career at PepsiCo, being a Mom is her number one job. She has a ton of pride in recruiting talent to PepsiCo but it’s an impossible task to recruit her sons. They are sure to follow in Dad’s footsteps as a Chicago Firefighter.
