Indra Nooyi

57, Purchase, New York

POSITION: Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo

NOTABLE FOR: Sticking to PepsiCo’s commitment to better nutrition, despite pressure from competitors and shareholders after the 2008 recession. Under Nooyi’s guidance, most PepsiCo products will have less sodium, sat fat, and sugar within eight years. She’s confident her soda-centered company can be both profitable and healthier. Indeed, she’s bullish on good health: Nooyi anticipates the company’s revenue from healthy snacks to roughly double—to $30 billion—by 2020.
