CREW Debra


Chief Executive Officer of Diageo North America

Organization: Diageo

Date of Birth: 20 December 1970

Age: 52 years old

Zodiac sign: Sagittarius

Profession: Chief Executive Officer



Debra Ann Crew is CEO and the president of Diageo North America. She is also a board member of Mondelez International, and the former president and chief executive officer of R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. She previously held senior management positions at PepsiCo, Mars, Incorporated, and Dreyer's.

Business career

Crew began her business career at Kraft Foods in 1997, where she filled a number of management positions. After seven years at Kraft, she moved to Dreyer's, a subsidiary of Nestlé, where she worked from 2004 to 2008, rising to Senior Vice President of Marketing, Frozen Snacks. From 2008 to 2010 she was General Manager and Chief Marketing Officer of Petcare US, at Mars, Incorporated.

Crew joined PepsiCo in April 2010 as president, Western European Region, headquartered in Geneva. In August 2012 she was named to the newly created position of President of Pepsico Americas Beverages, which incorporated responsibility for the North American operations of the Gatorade and Tropicana brands, the Latin America Beverages operation, the North America warehouse sales operation, and the Beverage Growth Ventures Group. In August 2014 she was named president and General Manager of PepsiCo North America Nutrition.

In October 2014 Crew departed PepsiCo to become president and Chief Commercial Officer of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. She had been a director of the company since December 2013. The switch from the food to cigarette industry surprised observers, as well as the timing, since she had headed PepsiCo's North America Nutrition for only two months. In September 2015 her title changed to president and COO. As COO she oversaw $8.6 billion of the company's estimated $10.7 billion in post-merger sales.

On January 1, 2017 Crew became the CEO of Reynolds American, taking over from former CEO Susan Cameron. She is one of the few women CEOs of a major American tobacco company, in what was an unusual transition in which a major company appoints two women CEOs consecutively.

In April 2019, Crew was appointed a non-executive director to Diageo's board. In July 2020, she replaced Deirde Mahlan as president of Diageo North America.

The goal of the project is to create a comfortable information space for all market participants, as well as to introduce the readership to business people in England.
We have created an impressive database of people in England, which contains information about the career path, education and other important information about a person.

The team GlobalEng.biz monitors changes in the rating and encourages project participants for their success. In general, the rating of participants is based on an in-depth analysis of the activity of PR services of famous people, and also reflects the qualitative state of the information field formed by the media and press services around the organization.
