Indra Nooyi Bio

Indra Nooyi also called as Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi. The Indian-born executive served as CEO and chair of PepsiCo for 12 years before stepping down as CEO in 2018 and chair in 2019; her fortune stems from stock she was granted while working there. During her tenure, she thwarted a bid to break up the company, nearly doubled sales to $65 billion and introduced healthier products and environmentally friendly practices. She joined Amazon’s board in 2019.

She is a extraordinary women who dared to bring gender equality and other issues to the forefront. From overcoming oppression, to breaking rules, to reimagining the world or waging a rebellion. She oversaw the acquisition (1998) of Tropicana Products and a merger in 2001 with the Quaker Oats Co. as part of the company’s strategy of diversifying into more healthful drinks and foods. Indra Nooyi, at 62, announced that she is stepping down as PepsiCo CEO.

Nooyi’s mother almost didn’t allow her to go to Yale, despite earning a hefty financial aid package, because she was 22 and still not married. Ultimately, Nooyi married at 25 to Raj K. Nooyi, who has been President at Amsoft Systems since 2002. They have two daughters.
