Woman named CEO of Pepsi-Cola (Isn't she the middle finger speech maker?)
The Washington Times ^ | August , | Vinnee Tong

Posted on 08/15/2006 4:24:11 AM PDT by saveliberty

Pepsico Inc. Chief Financial Officer Indra K. Nooyi will replace Steven Reinemund as chief executive, the Pepsi-Cola and snacks company said yesterday, making her the No. 2-ranked female CEO in the Fortune 500.
    With her Oct. 1 appointment, Mrs. Nooyi takes her place in an elite group of 11 female CEOs running Fortune 500 companies. Patricia Woertz at agricultural processor Archer Daniels Midland Co. ranks first. ADM is ranked 56th in the Fortune 500, while Pepsico, the world's second-largest soft-drink company after Coca-Cola Co., is ranked 61st.
    "I'm very excited and at the same time very humbled," she told analysts during a conference call yesterday morning.
    Mrs. Nooyi said she felt fortunate to be taking over at a time when Pepsico was in such a strong position, with solid growth across all its business units. She and Mr. Reinemund have worked closely over the last five years, and Mrs. Nooyi described their relationship as one in which they complete each other's sentences.
    "Indra Nooyi is truly a star and has been working side by side with Mr. Reinemund over the past several years," Citigroup analyst Bonnie Herzog wrote. "She has been very involved with every major decision Pepsico has made over the past five-plus years, and therefore, we expect this transition to be very smooth."

Pepsi alert. I don't know if you remember the speech that Indra Nooyi gave about the US being the middle finger, but somehow Pepsi decided to promote her.

The link to the objectionable material is below.

Yep.
She's an America-hating nut case.
More reason to stick to Coke, which I have preferred to Pepsi all my life anyways.

Hiya Def! Go ahead and finish it off. Pepsi already has been paid, just don't buy it in the future. Maybe you would like to write to Pepsi how you are upset by her commentary?

Diet Cherry Coke.

BTW Your tag line ????

I was raised in an all Asian/Black family and I am conservative plus pasty white and blue eyed so I guess I would have a tag line to damn long....

Considering the Mike Wallace interview, absolutely.

It's as though no journalist read "The Terrible Secret" and they are repeating Amb Joe Kennedy in the UK all over again.

I find it interesting that the article talks alot about Mr. Reinemund's accomplishments, but mentions Mrs. Nooyi's only as being "his right hand man."

Don't forget, Aquafina water, Tropico juices, Sunkist, and Lipton are all Pepsi products as well.

Pepsi-Cola also owns Frito Lay, Quaker Oats, Tropicana and Gatorade. Here's a full list of boycottable products:

Everyone should read the speech she gave. Personally, I'm going to boycott Pepsi products, write a nasty-gram to Pepsico, and one to my retirement fund company urging that they drop Pepsico from their portfolio. We don't need her kind in positions of power...anywhere.

As I recall, Pepsico also gave its illegal workers the day off to protest earlier this year.

Now that we know what Pepsico thinks of America and Americans, let's all show Pepsico what America and Americans think of them and their illegal workers!

Isn't Dr. Pepper a sweet wussy drink. Surprises me for a state like Texas. Would have expected whiskey.

A billboard outside of Pepsi headquarters would be effective except for the fact that apparently at Pepsico, reading comprehension is optional.

From Pepsico's website:

Our Commitment

Our commitment is to deliver sustained growth, through empowered people, acting with responsibility and building trust.

Under Guiding principles:

Care for customers, consumers and the world we live in. ...Our success depends on a thorough understanding of our customers, consumers and communities. Caring means going the extra mile. Essentially, this is a spirit of growing rather than taking.

Blah...blah...blah. What we really mean is everyone else in the world is important of consideration, but not the U.S. where we got our start.

No I think she's been celebrated as a leftwing star for a while. Let her drive the business where she thinks she can. Meanwhile, we can encourage our friends and families to shop for other products and services.

I have not heard from rp in a while but I have not been available much. When I last emailed her, she was busy and enjoying her new home and job. The new show IIRC was in the afternoon (3-6 I think?)
