Amazon.com Inc has appointed former PepsiCo Inc Chief Executive Officer Indra Nooyi as a director. 

Nooyi is the second woman to be named to the company’s board in February. The move comes as part of the e-commerce giant's attempt to increase diversity.

With this appointment, Amazon’s 11-member board now has five women, including Nooyi, Brewer, Jamie Gorelick, Judith McGrath and Patricia Stonesifer.

Earlier in February, Starbucks Corp's Chief Operating Officer Rosalind Brewer was appointed as a director. 

Nooyi will be part of the board's audit committee. She resigned as the CEO of PepsiCo in October 2018 and as its chairman earlier this year.
