Indra Nooyi's departure as PepsiCo's CEO has left Twitterati quite emotional. After leading the US food and beverage giant for 12 years, Nooyi has finally decided to hang up her boots.

The 62-year-old CEO will leave the company on October 3 after serving 24 years with the PepsiCo. She will, however, remain as chairman until early 2019.

"Growing up in India, I never imagined I'd have the opportunity to lead such an extraordinary company," Nooyi, one of the world's most powerful and influential business leaders, said in a statement on Twitter.

"Today is a day of mixed emotions for me. @PepsiCo has been my life for 24 years & part of my heart will always remain here. I'm proud of what we've done & excited for the future. I believe PepsiCo's best days are yet to come," she tweeted.

Her decision to depart the food and beverage giant came as a shock to everyone. But the netizens congratulated Nooyi for spearheading the company for more than a decade and wished her a good luck for the bright future ahead.
