Pepsi Celebrates 20th Anniversary with James Bond Themed Soiree
2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Pepsi Cola Jamaica and to commemorate the milestone the beverage company hosted a ‘James Bond 007’ themed soiree on Sunday, December 8th at the AC Marriott Hotel, Kingston. The elegant affair was not only an anniversary celebration but also a long service award ceremony, recognising employees who have been with the Pepsi team for 5 and 20 years.
In keeping with the James Bond theme, the glamorous guests were decked out in their formal wear including three-piece suits, bow ties, floor-length gowns with high slits and high heels. The evening opened with a James Bond-inspired dance number by L’acadco Dance Company that got guests excited for the rest of the evening’s festivities.
Opening remarks were made by General Manager, Alejandro Sacasa.
“This would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment each of you has put into this company. Your dedication to meeting company targets has allowed us to build communities and provide platforms that empower and grow small businesses and [the] entrepreneurial spirit. This is the finest definition of being a proud Jamaican,” he expressed.
The accomplished workers who are among the reasons why Pepsi have reached this milestone were recognised for their dedication. Eight awardees were recognised for their 5 years of service and forty-five awardees for their 20 years of service.
Quality Control Vendor, Noel ‘Mr. Pepsi’ Brown, a 20-year team member remarked,
“I am proud to be a part of Pepsi and to help achieve their vision. I really feel valued and respected by my co-workers and bosses. Happy birthday Pepsi!”
Guests were further entertained by L’acadco Dance Company with a dance montage that represented “Pepsi Over The Years”, a delicious dinner, prizes including a weekend for two at Iberostar Hotel and 50” televisions. To close the evening, DJ Kurt Riley had guests dancing the night away.
