History in the Making Award to Honor Indra Nooyi
June 12, 2019, 6:30 pm–9:00 pm$375 – $500
On June 12, Greenwich Historical Society will present its History in the Making Award to Former Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo Indra K. Nooyi during a special evening at the Round Hill Club.
In recognizing Nooyi’s leadership and celebrating her successes, the Historical Society acknowledges Nooyi’s important place in a long history of local women’s achievements as we kick off the 100th anniversary of the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1919–1920.
Prior to becoming chairman, Nooyi served as PepsiCo’s president and chief financial officer. Since joining the company in 1994, she has directed PepsiCo’s global strategy and led its restructuring, including the acquisition of Tropicana and the merger with Quaker Oats, the merger with PepsiCo’s anchor bottlers and the acquisition of Wimm-Bill-Dann, the largest international acquisition in PepsiCo’s history.
She holds a B.S. from Madras Christian College, an M.B.A. from the Indian Institute of Management in Calcutta and a Master of Public and Private Management from Yale University.
Indra Nooyi is the seventh person to receive the Historical Society’s History in the Making Award, which was established in 2003 to recognize individuals from our community who are the history makers of our own time. Former awardees were Derek Boothby, Thomas Foley, Curt Welling, Marie and Charlene Von Saher and Lewis Lehrman.
We hope you will join us to recognize this important member of our community. Proceeds from this year’s event will support a major exhibition and public programs on the role of Greenwich women in the suffrage movement and the movement’s legacy today that will take place in 2019–2020.
