Donald M. Kendall, PepsiCo developer of cola wars, dies at 99

Donald M. Kendall, who built PepsiCo Inc. into a snack-and-beverage juggernaut and introduced the Soviet Union to American cola at the height of the Cold War, died Saturday. He was 99 years old.

The executive, who grew up milking cows and finished just three semesters of college, became chief executive of Pepsi-Cola Co. in 1963 at age 42 and presided over the company until his retirement in 1986. During that time, sales grew nearly 40-fold through acquisitions and the “Pepsi Challenge”—its high-profile marketing assault on the dominance of rival Coca-Cola Co.

“He was relentless about growing our business, a fearless leader, and the ultimate salesman,” said PepsiCo CEO and Chairman Ramon Laguarta. “In many ways, he was the man who made PepsiCo PepsiCo.”

Argentina’s economic woes send companies fleeing

A growing number of foreign companies are slashing investments in Argentina or fleeing altogether, fearing the leftist government’s increasingly interventionist moves aimed at stabilising the struggling economy.

While finance minister Martin Guzmán is expected to present rosy predictions in Tuesday’s budget, Chilean retail giant Falabella became the latest in a string of companies to announce its intention to withdraw from Argentina last week as the government moved to tighten already strict capital controls to protect dwindling foreign exchange reserves.

President Alberto Fernández scored a big victory through a deal with private creditors to restructure $65bn of foreign debt last month. But the onset of the pandemic just three months into his term has stymied attempts to rebuild investor confidence.
