PepsiCo's CEO Indra Nooyi joins Amazon's Board of Directors

March 1, 2019
WASHINGTON: PepsiCo's former India-born CEO Indra Nooyi has joined Amazon's board of directors. Nooyi had stepped down from her Pepsico position in October last.

"We're thrilled to have elected two new members to our Board of Directors this month. Welcome, Roz Brewer and Indra Nooyi," Amazon said in a statement on month-end. Starbucks executive Rosalind Brewer too joined the Board last month. Nooyi would be a member of the audit committee.

She was Pepsico CEO from October 2006 to October 2018, where she also served as the Chairman of its board of directors from May 2007 to February 2019. She held roles in finance, corporate strategy and development and strategic planning. PepsiCo is the second largest food and beverage business in the world.

Indra Nooyi is an Indian-American Tamil business executive and has ranked among the world's 100 most powerful women.

Last year, the International Cricket Council had announced Nooyi would join the ICC Board as its first independent female director.
