PepsiCo senior exec joins RenaissanceRe board


Bermuda-based re/insurer RenaissanceRe has appointed Cynthia Trudell as an independent director on the company's board.

Trudell has previously served as executive vice president and chief human resources officer at multinational food, snack, and beverage corporation PepsiCo, a position she held from 2011 until her retirement in September 2017.

Prior to that, she was senior vice president and chief personnel officer of PepsiCo from 2007 to 2011.

Before PepsiCo, Trudell had held a number of executive operating and general management positions including at General Motors Corporation and Brunswick Corporation.

This development is in conjunction with Edward Zore retiring from the board following fully three terms as a director.

“The entire RenaissanceRe executive team and my fellow directors are delighted by the nomination of Cynthia. Her distinguished background as a chief executive and as a leader of organisational talent across industries confronting change, as well as her experience as a director in financial services, is ideal for our company at this time," said Kevin O’Donnell, president and CEO of RenaissanceRe.

"We are also pleased to recognise Ed for his distinguished service. Ed’s industry experience, investment acumen and general wise counsel have been invaluable to me and my team. We thank Ed for his service, and look forward to welcoming Cynthia.”
