In his current role, he provides customer leadership for Gatorade & Propel Grocery Warehouse, covering the western half of the U.S.
Bell joined PepsiCo in 1998 as Field Finance Manager, Foodservice for Quaker Oats. He progressed through many roles of increasing responsibilities across Sales, Sales Strategy and Operations for Frito-Lay and PepsiCo Beverages, which lead to his current role.

After graduating from Benedictine, Bell earned a Master of Business Administration from Keller Graduate School of Management.
Established in 2020 by Benedictine University’s College of Liberal Arts “Forward” task force, Journeys in Leadership is a nonpartisan, non-political speaker series generously supported by the Becker Endowment fund. Stressing the importance of a liberal arts education, the common thread of the JIL speakers is their commitment to community discourse and living active, healthy lives.
