Steve Richardson Earns Ring of Honor Recognition

We are very proud to announce that Steve Richardson has been selected as a winner of the 2024 Chairman’s Ring of Honor, PepsiCo’s most prestigious sales performance award! ​​​​​​​Steve joins an elite group as only one tenth of one percent of Pepsi employees earn this award worldwide!

Steve joined G&J Pepsi in January 2018 and serves as the Senior Market Director for our Kentucky Market. In this role, he is responsible for the Lexington, Winchester, and Maysville facilities. Under his leadership, he and his entire team were recently awarded the 2023 Market of the Year for their business successes and performance.

Steve is extremely passionate about his go-to-market performance and continues to drive incremental sales and revenue for G&J Pepsi, always focused on beating the competition! When Steve was told he won this award, he was very humbled, excited, and recognized this was only possible with the continued support of his team.

Steve will represent G&J Pepsi in New York City in June of this year, accompanied by other Ring of Honor winners.

Congratulations to Steve and the Kentucky team for your achievements and for this well-deserved recognition.

Another very important note is the Ring of Honor nomination of three additional G&J Pepsi team members. Please join me in congratulating these individuals for their accomplishments too – we are very proud of them!

  • Terry Andrews, Senior Market Sales Manager in Zanesville, Ohio (Field Sales Team)
  • Ryan Schmerge, Senior Key Account Manager in Columbus, Ohio (On-Premise Team)
  • Brenda Tackett, On-Premise Sales Manager in Franklin Furnace, Ohio (On-Premise Team)

Well done everyone and way to represent G&J Pepsi!
