PepsiCo (PEP) watchers see the resignation of President John Compton and other corporate reshuffling as a sign that CEO Indra Nooyi plans to stay on board for a few more years. Though a number of activist shareholders have pressured Nooyi to warm up to the idea of separating the snacks business from the beverage business, she has held firm with her own plans for growth.

    The CEO of Pepsi has led PEP through a period great accomplishments, but has lost her way in making the decision to be a leader in the effort to be a "Green" corporation. Pepsi as a corporation that makes money responding to desires of customer, not leading them. It is time for the current Chairman to move on.

    Absolutely, I have said it before in many posts throughout the web....Indra Nooyi is an arrogant, out of touch and unqualified executive. There is no way she has earned this position in one of the world's most prestigious brands. Apparently, the only persons weaker at Pepsico is their board of directors. They make money because of the Frito Lay brands. The rest are marginally successful and are draining the resources of Frito Lay. If Nooyi was an American male...she would have been replaced a couple of years ago. There is this mentality in the USA that an slow speaking person with an Indian accent is intelligent and well thought out. Not really folks, it just doesn't work that way. All cultures, races, creeds, genders, etc have their share of less than effective people. I am being nice. Nooyi is a waste of time. Good luck to John Compton, though, he deserves it!
