Top Pizza Hut role for Pepsi man

Pizza Hut has chosen PepsiCo general manager Stacey Clark as its new marketing director, after a search lasting over a year.

Clark, who launched Pepsi Max, replaces Steve Dunn who left to join Mercury One2One in April 1994. He has since left the telecoms company.

Pizza Hut appointed Dixons product/retail marketing director Paula Vennells to take over from Dunn last November (MW November 3, 1994). But after initially accepting the post she joined Olympus Sport instead, as general manager for its out-of-town stores.

Peter Maslen then stepped in from Pizza Hut International. He will return to PepsiCo International – which owns Pizza Hut International – on a “general management assignment”, says Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut recently appointed Ed Aspel, brand manager for Whitbread-distributed brand Tooheys, as marketing manager, products, and United Distillers brand development controller Simon Chamberlain as marketing manager for channel management – which covers distribution.

Pizza Hut UK is jointly owned by Whitbread – sole franchisee and joint operator in the UK – and PepsiCo, which owns the rights worldwide.

Pizza Hut describes Clark as the driving force behind the relaunched Pepsi challenge ads on TV.

Before he joined Pepsi, eight years ago, Clark worked for United Biscuits.
