New Delhi, Aug 30: Chairman of Tata Group Ratan Tata who is set to retire by the end of 2012, have been speculated that PepsiCo Chairman Indra Nooyi, is among the possible candidates to succeed Tata.

Reacting to this speculation she herself ruled out of the race saying she "loves" her present job.

"Ratan is an unbelievable person. He has got an incredible stable of people who can succeed him. I am running one of the greatest companies in the world, PepsiCo. I love my job," Nooyi told a news agency when asked about the speculation linking her to the top job.

The Chennai-born chief of the world's leading company in convenient snacks, foods and beverages, with revenues of more than USD 60 billion and over 285,000 employees, however, praised the Tata Group.
