Loyd is recognized by Indra K. Nooyi, chairman and chief executive officer of PepsiCo. Loyd works as maintenance planner and scheduler for the Frito-Lay manufacturing facility here in Fayetteville.

Fayetteville’s John Loyd is among 39 U.S. and Canadian-based supply chain associates from PepsiCo North American Foods to be honored as PepsiCo’s top performers worldwide with induction into the Chairman’s Circle of Champions.

Included in PepsiCo North American Foods are Frito-Lay North America, Quaker Oats Co. and Sabra Dipping Co., a joint venture between PepsiCo and Strauss Group.

Loyd works as maintenance planner and scheduler for the Frito-Lay North America manufacturing facility in Fayetteville. He schedules and plans maintenance for the Fayetteville manufacturing facilities.

He has been in this position for two years and an associate at Frito-Lay North America for 11 years.

The 39 associates recognized this year were selected from among PepsiCo’s more than 250,000-person global supply chain team. The winners were honored earlier this month at the annual Chairman’s Circle of Winners induction ceremony in New York City.

“We are very proud of this year’s Chairman’s Circle of Champions who have exemplified excellence and leadership skills in making and delivering some of North America’s favorite snacks,” said Leslie Starr Keating, senior vice president, supply chain, PepsiCo North American Foods. “These associates are committed to continually improving our business and exceeding the expectations of the consumers we serve.”

Award winners represent an elite group of supply chain associates from around the world who demonstrate exceptional performance in the area of safety, quality, service, cost, sustainability, and people skills. PepsiCo is committed to recognizing and championing the achievements of its greatest asset – its employees.
