This person has made Chennai proud.. Now, let's see how she tackles the cola controversy in India..

Congratulations Indira Nooyi for becoming the next CEO of Pepsi


  1. Her Bio written by Forbes reads as -

    As the highest-ranking Indian-born woman in corporate America, Nooyi, 49, has pushed PepsiCo to take bold risks, with moves that include acquiring Tropicana in 1998 and helping to start the company's fast-food chains in 1997. Nooyi has a degree in management from Yale, and her career includes stints at the Boston Consulting Group and Motorola. She attributes much of her success to her upbringing in India. "Being a woman, being foreign-born, you've got to be smarter than anyone else," says Nooyi, who honors her heritage by often attending PepsiCo events wearing a sari. Nooyi also serves on numerous boards, including Motorola and New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
