Pepsi’s ad man erased color lines

first_img“His groundbreaking history with Pepsi and the powerful, lasting impact that Ed made on both our company and our nation speak for themselves,” Nooyi said in a statement. “When I reflect upon people who have made a profound difference on our company, Ed Boyd’s name will be foremost among them. I believe his passion and tenacity are the embodiment of the very best of what PepsiCo strives to be every day,” Nooyi continued. As an assistant sales manager who led the group, Boyd created a marketing campaign that showed blacks as respectable, middle-class consumers. One store display, for example, pictured a smiling mother holding a six-pack of Pepsi-Cola as her handsome, young son reached for a bottle. There also were series that profiled 20 black achievers and featured top students at black universities drinking Pepsi. Boyd is survived by his wife of 63 years, Edith Jones; daughter Rebecca of New York City; and sons Brandon Boyd of New York City, Edward Boyd Jr. of Boulder, Colo., and Timothy Boyd of Chicago. Edward F. Boyd, a former Pepsi ad man who broke color barriers with one of the first corporate marketing campaigns to portray blacks in a positive light, has died. He was 92. Boyd died April 30 in Los Angeles, Pepsi-Cola North America spokesman Dave DeCecco said in a statement. There were no other details, but news reports said he died at Century City Doctors Hospital from stroke complications. Boyd was working at the National Urban League in New York City in 1947 when Pepsi hired him and a team of educated black salesmen to help the company drives sales among blacks. PepsiCo chairman Indra Nooyi said it was time to celebrate Boyd’s “amazing life and journey. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Exclusive – Klopp perfect replacement for Pardew at Newcastle, claims former manager

first_imgFormer Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder believes Mike Ashley should go all out to land Borussia Dortmund chief Jurgen Klopp as Alan Pardew’s replacement.Pardew is set to quit St James’ Park for Crystal Palace in the coming days, after the Eagles agreed a compensation package with their Premier League rivals.And former Mapgies boss Roeder claims Klopp should be the number one target to take charge of the Toon.Dortmund may have qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League but have struggled domestically and, with the team currently in the Bundesliga relegation zone, Roeder reckons the highly-rated German coach could be tempted to move to the Premier League.“Newcastle need to find someone who’s very experienced, has managed in the top divisions and has a winning track record,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.“For once, I wouldn’t take a chance on anyone up and coming. You have got to give Newcastle fans a real character, like Chelsea did a number of years ago when they brought in Jose Mourinho.“The first thing Mike Ashley will look for is an experienced British manager, with a great CV, but they are an endangered species.“Whether you like it or not there are not many British managers that have got that sort of CV that is required to give the fans.“Someone who does fit Newcastle’s bill is Jurgen Klopp. You might just get him at the moment because Borussia Dortmund are having a terrible season.“He is a real character and is just the sort of person the fans could warm to quickly.“He speaks very good English, has a great sense of humour and is obviously a very good coach. They may just land someone like that because, as far as British managers are concerned, they are not there currently.”last_img read more
