Ivanka moved to PepsiCo following a hugely successful career at Diageo, starting out as Managing Director of Global Supply Chain and working her way up to lead on key projects like Route to Consumer and implementing a sell-out culture across all markets.
Whilst investing in further education including an MBA, plus a Masters in Executive Education from Oxford University, she went on to join the Diageo Leadership Team as Director of Global Sales Operations Excellence.
Throughout her career, Ivanka has championed women’s development. She is the founder and head of the Female Leaders in Supply Chain Network.
Ivanka was born in Nunspeet in the Netherlands, and now lives in Switzerland. With her passion for boating, she spends her spare time on the lakes in her beloved 1950’s wooden boat (Boesch
1958). In between that you’ll find her further afield travelling and hiking, including Mount Everest Base Camp in recent years.
