My Bottom Line: Richard Evans, PepsiCo

15 June 2012 Last updated at 10:18 BST

Richard Evans is president of PepsiCo in the UK and Ireland. He says when he is looking for future leaders he wants them to have two things: intellectual curiosity and a breadth of experience.

He says leaders are facing new challenges and he seeks to recruit people with a range of experiences and interests, who are resilient, and importantly are wired into new trends.

Richard appeared on The Bottom Line which is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service. Listen again via the podcast or watch it on the BBC News Channel
