Ivanka Trump and Indra Nooyi

For people living under the rock, Ivanka Trump is a businesswoman, fashion designer, author and reality television personality. She was also appointed as the senior advisor to her father, the American President, Donald Trump.

Taking to twitter, Ivanka Trump wrote, "The great @IndraNooyi is stepping down as PepsiCo CEO, after 12 yrs. Indra, you are a mentor + inspiration to so many, myself included. I am deeply grateful for your friendship. Thank you for your passionate engagement on issues that benefit the people of this country, and beyond."

In 2016, Nooyi had joined a 19-person Strategic and Policy Forum created by then President-elect Trump as he prepared his economic agenda for the US. However, the forum disbanded in August 2017 in the wake of Trump's confrontational response to a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Sixty-two-year-old Nooyi joined Pepsi Co in 1994 and became CFO in 2001. The India-born high profile executive became CEO in 2006. She drove the company's global strategy. Nooyi will step down on October 3 after 24 years with the company, of which she was the CEO of the company for 12 years.
