Hoffman most recently served as Deputy Chief of Staff to the Vice President of the United States Joe Biden and Deputy Assistant to the President, where he was responsible for the long-term planning and day-to-day operations of the vice president's office.  In this role, he provided policy, political, communications, legislative, and legal advice to the Vice President, Cabinet members and Administration staff.

"Alan is a proven leader who brings tremendous experience and expertise to PepsiCo," said Larry Thompson, executive vice president, government affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary, PepsiCo.  "Alan is well-versed in a wide range of public policy issues and widely respected across all levels of government, and we look forward to benefiting from his leadership."

Hoffman previously served as senior vice president for external relations for the University of California, directing strategy, communications, marketing, advocacy, government relations, fundraising and community relations for the 10 campuses, five medical centers and three national labs that comprise the UC system.

He also spent time as a partner at Timmons & Company, a Washington, D.C. government relations and consulting firm, and as vice president for external relations at the RAND Corporation.

Earlier in his career, Hoffman served in the Clinton White House working on health policy issues. In addition, he worked in the Department of Health and Human Services as special assistant to the assistant secretary for legislative affairs and in the Department of Justice as special counsel to the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs.  He also served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Philadelphia, where he prosecuted federal crimes for the Justice Department.

Hoffman replaces Dan Bryant, who was recently named chair of the public policy and government affairs practice at Covington & Burling.
