The Indian-American businesswoman, who broke glass ceiling and paved a new pathway for women in the business world, Indra Nooyi has taken a big step that has been marked as an end of an era. Nooyi has stepped down as the chief executive officer (CEO) of PepsiCo Inc.
The announcement was made by the food and beverage company stating that “Laguarta will take over from Nooyi on October 3 and will also join the board.” The sixty-two-year-old, who has been a part of the company for 24 years, will continue as the chairman of the board till early next year.
When Nooyi took over the position as CEO of the company in the year 2006, she became the first female CEO of the brand, and Nooyi’s 12-year-long journey has been an inspiration to many, especially women.
The announcement of her exit from the position made many emotional as they shared their feelings on Twitter.
Performance with Purpose. To manage to put PepsiCo – a cola company- in the list of the world’s most ethical companies consistently year after year is to my mind one of Indra Nooyi”s greatest achievements . #indranooyi

The Great Indra Nooyi – Pepsi CEO for the last 12 years steps down on October 3rd. During her tenure, she increased revenue by 81% leading to $63.5 billion in revenue last year. The stock is up and under her, the portfolio has diversified. #Inspired https://t.co/KO4eURfgo7
Just in: Indra Nooyi steps down as PepsiCo CEO. (That’s one less woman CEO in the world.)
As she steps down at PepsiCo’s helm, Indra Nooyi completes an exceptional 12 years as CEO. Her vision of changing consumer preferences back in 2006 transformed PepsiCo to lead market changes while achieving outstanding financial performance. https://t.co/yOh8L8zLWv
