Ann Mukherjee is known for advocating that brands embrace authenticity to form stronger bonds with consumers. She brings this perspective to SC Johnson, where she became its first global CMO in 2015, leading marketing efforts for brands that include Glade, Pledge, Raid, Windex, Ziploc, Brise, Mr. Muscle and Ridsect, among others.  

She moved to SC Johnson from PepsiCo, where she started in 2005 in Frito-Lay’s Convenience Foods Division, responsible for leading marketing, new product innovation, consumer insights and strategy and for all Quaker-branded snacking. As a fast-rising star in the company’s executive ranks, Mukherjee carved out a reputation for building brands via traditional marketing and social media savvy. In 2009, she was named Frito-Lay North America Chief Marketing Officer. The brand’s marketing under her leadership not only won numerous industry awards, but was also the primary growth driver helping Frito- Lay consistently rank #1 or #2 in food growth in North America, and in 2014 she became president of PepsiCo’s Global Snacks Group and PepsiCo Global Insights. 

Mukherjee began her marketing career at Citibank Diners Club working on new product development, and also worked for 11 years at Kraft, on brands including Kraft Mac ‘N Cheese, Kraft Singles, Taco Bell, Minute Rice, Stove Top Stuffing, Velveeta and DiGiorno.
