Amazon Inc appoints Indra Nooyi as Director

US tech giant Amazon Inc has appointed former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi in its board of directors.

After serving as chairman of PepsiCo, the second largest food and beverage firm in the world by net revenue, and as CEO for 13 years from 2006-2019, Nooyi stepped down from Pepsico in October last year

An Indian-American of Tamil origin, 63-year-old Nooyi is the second woman to be named to Amazon’s board in February. The move comes as part of the e-commerce giant’s attempt to increase diversity.

With this appointment, Amazon’s 11-member board now has five women, including Nooyi, Brewer, Jamie Gorelick, Judith McGrath and Patricia Stonesifer.

Nooyi would also be a member of the Amazon’s audit committee.

A graduate from Madras Christian College, Chennai, Nooyi is an almnus of Indian Institute of Management Calcutta.

In February 2018, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that Nooyi would join the ICC Board as its first independent female director in June.
