810: Following the Data Trail | David Barnes, CFO, Trimble


Generally, when legendary CEO Roger Enrico wasn’t happy, just about every PepsiCo executive from junior grades on up knew about it. So it was that when David Barnes was told he would be presenting to Enrico on a subject known to inflame the CEO’s ire, he knew that his presentation—one way or the other—would be career-defining. “Enrico was known to be very impatient with those who would present a bunch of facts but offer no insights,” remembers Barnes, whose tryst with destiny surfaced via the guidance of none other than Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo’s future CEO, who Barnes tells us was his “great mentor and sponsor” during his Pepsi years. “Pepsi had hired a big consulting firm and they had dumped a lot of data on us, but they couldn’t find any insights, so Indra asked me to work with the consultants and actually get the insights out of the data,” continues Barnes, who had been hired in the mid-1990s to be part of a strategy group within PepsiCo that had been tasked with integrating strategy and finance across the company. As it turned out, Barnes’s presentation succeeded in delivering a number of new insights related to the profitability (or lack thereof) of PepsiCo’s restaurant business in China. “We had a small, money-losing business in China at a time when the Asian economies at large were experiencing deep recessions, so the questions being asked were ‘Do we give up?’ and ‘Do we double down?,’” recalls Barnes, who would soon open a new career chapter in China—an indication that perhaps his presentation had gone well.  “They wanted a known quantity in China—someone with the company’s corporate interests at heart—so I became responsible for finance as well as our development activities around new stores for KFC and Pizza Hut,” explains Barnes, who would subsequently use data to better expose an opportunity for new stores inside China’s smaller tertiary markets rather than in big cities. “We figured out that there was a better way to do capital resource allocation just for these markets,” comments Barnes, who recalls the business leader who ultimately made the call when it came to opening new stores as saying: “Let’s get at it!” –Jack Sweeney

He lives his faith every day by serving one of the most important places in our faith. Follower of One's marketplace mission trip was still able to build a better environment for David. How is this possible? Well, in the discussion, David talks about how he meets with several people who don't believe. Whether it was construction workers, or people showing up to the church that are still not believers. This gave David the ability to spread the word every day by focusing on what is most important, our God. Every day is a mission and we need to be cognizant of that fact! Opportunity lies just beyond misconception. Take time to read some of the opportunities around you, even if it doesn't seem bountiful.  Slow Down We all have lives going in separate directions. Not one single person has the same path of life that you do and that is a strength we have! David talks about how the Marketplace Mission Trip allowed him to slow down and think about how he plans to spread the gospel each day. This is not an easy task, we know! Each day we probably wake up to distraction or passion. Take time to slow down in the morning and get your mind right for the day. It will help!  Interview Quote "Follower of One told me that we don't have to go anywhere. There are enough people here that need to hear the Gospel!"
