After going through three general counsel in the last five years, PepsiCo Inc. has decided to reach within its ranks for its fourth, rather than bring in another outsider. On Friday, the company named David Yawman executive vice president for government affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary, replacing Tony West, who decamped to lead the legal department at Uber Technologies Inc.

Yawman has shown he can stick around at PepsiCo. He started at the company as a senior counsel in 1998, and most recently served as senior vice president and deputy GC while also serving as general counsel of North America Beverages and Quaker Foods NA at PepsiCo, according to his profile on LinkedIn.
