Amazon Adds Former Pepsi CEO to Its Board

Amazon added former Pepsi CEO Indra K. Nooyi to its Board of Directors. Wikipedia says the 63-year-old is consistently ranked among the world’s 100 most powerful women.

CNBC noted Nooyi becomes the fifth female member of Amazon’s 11-person board. You can find a list of company officers and board members on the Amazon Investor Relations website.

Here’s the report Amazon filed with the SEC:

On February 25, 2019, the Board of Directors of Amazon.com, Inc. (the “Company”) elected Indra K. Nooyi as a director of the Company, and also appointed her to the Audit Committee of the Board. Ms. Nooyi was the Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo, Inc. from October 2006 to October 2018, where she also served as the Chairman of its board of directors from May 2007 to February 2019.

She was elected to PepsiCo’s board of directors and became its President and Chief Financial Officer in 2001, and held leadership roles in finance, corporate strategy and development, and strategic planning after joining PepsiCo in 1994.

Ms. Nooyi also entered into an indemnification agreement with the Company in the same form its other directors have entered, which is filed as an exhibit to Amendment No. 1, filed April 21, 1997, to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (Registration No. 333-23795).
