PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi on Jim Cramer tonight at 6

Last week, I named PepsiCo chief executive Indra Nooyi one of my Top 5 Business Heroes of the 2000s.

Tonight, you can see her interviewed on Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" show on CNBC at 6.

I called Nooyi the "best CEO you've never heard of" because she is not a celebrity CEO, like Steve Jobs. What she is is a smart global thinker and prudent money person. She smartly sold off PepsiCo's restaurant division, which included Taco Bell, and doubled-down on the beverages, picking up Tropicana and Gatorade. And, frankly, as someone said last week, you could call PepsiCo "FritosCo" instead, because the majority of the company's revenue now comes from its snack division.

Tune in at 6 p.m. and see what she has to say. After the video gets put on the CNBC Web site later tonight, I'll embed it here.
