PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi appointed ICC’s first independent female director

The International Cricket Council on Friday appointed PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi as the ICC board’s first independent female director.

Nooyi will join the world cricket governing body in June 2018 to align with the term of the ICC Independent Chairman, following the unanimous confirmation of her appointment.

The introduction of an Independent Director, who must be female, was approved by the ICC Full Council in June 2017 as part of wide ranging constitutional change aimed at improving the global governance of the sport.

The Independent Director will be appointed for a two-year term although she may be re-appointed for two further terms with a maximum six-year consecutive period of service.
