This week we celebrate one of America’s most powerful women in business. Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi is an American business executive and the current Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo. She has also held business strategy positions with companies like Motorola and Asea Brown Boveri. PepsiCo is now the one of the largest food and beverage businesses in the world by net revenue. She holds a stellar record of improving production costs and decreasing corporate spending on junk foods. She also holds a stellar record of improving overall net revenue. She has also pushed the company into healthier food and drink offerings and alternatives. Many think that healthier acquisitions may come in the near future, as Nooyi works to diversify, transitioning out of the declining soda industry.

Nooyi serves as an Honorary Co-Chair for the World Justice Project. The World Justice Project works to lead a global effort to increase public awareness about the foundational importance of the rule of law. The project works to stimulate government reforms, and develop practical programs at the community level, advocating for opportunity and equity within these communities. Her efforts in community, as well as her work in changing the food and beverage industry make her an inspiration to women in business everywhere.
