Go a decade back , it was difficult to find people from Indian origin taking up high post in International companies. But things have changed for good , Look at the list of top 500 Forbes companies , you will see around dozen Indian taking up the premier post of Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Recent addition in the list India-born Sundar Pichai was named CEO of Google proudly by the company's founders Larry Page and Sergei Brinin. Pichai is just 43 and a Chennai native did his studies from IIT Kharagpur, Stanford and Wharton. Couple of months back Google also increased his salary so that they do not loose him to Twitter or for that matter he was also running up for the post of CEO Microsoft.
The others who have made India proud in last decade are Indra Nooyi CEO at Pepsi, Ajay Banga CEO at Mastercard, Sanjay Mehrotra CEO at SanDisk. Nikhil Arora CEO Japan’s Soft Bank and many others.
