C.D. Glin is responsible for the daily management of the PepsiCo Foundation. He also oversees the Foundation’s strategic direction and continued focus on driving progress towards a more sustainable food system.

Before PepsiCo, Glin served as President and CEO of the U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF), an Africa-focused philanthropic organization established by Congress to invest grant capital, build capacity, and scale locally owned, sustainable solutions for underserved and agricultural-dependent populations. In that role, he leads strategy, operations, and strategic partnerships across 21 country offices and has awarded over $150 million in funding to more than 1,500 grassroots enterprises, non-profits, and community-based organizations. Prior to USADF, Glin was an Associate Director in Nairobi, Kenya, at The Rockefeller Foundation. While there, he led YieldWise, a $130 million effort to improve incomes and create jobs for smallholder farmers by reducing post-harvest crop loss and promoting sustainable sourcing in agriculture value chains.
