Indra K. Nooyi is one of the most powerful businesswomen in the world, holding a throne as Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo and PEPSICO INC since 2006. For the 2013 fiscal year, Nooyi received about $1,600,000 in salary compensation, $4 million in bonuses, and over $7 million in stock awards. As of 2014, Nooyi’s total net worth is an estimated $144,000,000.
Nooyi’s annual income for 2013 totaled a whopping $18.6 million, which included a $1.6 million base salary. In early 2014, USA Today reported Nooyi’s 5% pay bump to 13.2 million as a result of PepsiCo’s adjusted performance-based bonus.
PepsiCo recently restructured payment to be determined by long-term incentive award program tied to the performance of company’s stock. In ’12, Nooyi announced a major restructuring of the PepsiCo brand after losing market share to Coca-Cola Co., and has clearly made an impact.
In addition to its namesake soda, PepsiCo fills bottles of Gatorade and Mountain Dew, and bags of Frito-Lay snacks such as Doritos and Cheetos. All together, PepsiCo is a $66 billion giant, and Nooyi’s executive philosophy argues that the company’s massive range of product offerings is appealing to retailers. The beverage-snack one-two-punch even helps retailers like Wal-Mart stores keep a customer base (much to the assumed delight of fellow major net worth racker, CEO of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Sam’s Club division, Rosalind Brewer.)
All things considered,
