“Keurig Dr Pepper’s code of conduct is built on a foundation of ethics, integrity and personal responsibility. Every employee, without exception, is accountable for knowing and following the code,” said Paul S. Michaels, lead director of the KDP Board. “Bob’s vision and leadership have driven KDP’s success as a modern beverage company to date, and the board is grateful for his willingness to return as CEO.”
