New York, Dec 22 (PTI) People with Indian roots are fast climbing up the American corporate ladder and today there are as many as eight such CEOs including the likes of Indra Nooyi and Vikram Pandit, who run big US corporations, according to a Forbes list titled, 'Eight Indian CEOs At Big US Companies.'
PepsiCo's Madras-born Indra Nooyi tops the list Indian-origin CEOs in the US.
