Indra Nooyi ranked most powerful businesswoman
Chennai-born Indra Nooyi, who was recently appointed as CEO of global soft drink giant PepsiCo, has been named as the world's most powerful business woman by Fortune magazine, ahead of people like Oprah Winfrey and eBay chief Meg Whitman.
The latest feat follows a similar honour bestowed upon Nooyi by another business publication Forbes, which had also named her as the world's most powerful woman soon after she was named the new PepsiCo CEO.
Fortune, the business magazine of CNN-Time Warner Group, said Nooyi had been named to the top spot on its ninth annual list of 50 Most Powerful Women in Business, which would appear in the latest issue of the magazine hitting news stands on October 9.
Padmasee Warrior, another woman of Indian origin, who is the Chief Technology Officer at US-based telecom giant Motorola, has also been named among the four "rising stars" in the same issue of Fortune, who could find place in the next list of power business woman of the world.
