Elon Musk, renowned for his leadership at Tesla, SpaceX, and his ownership of ‘X’ (previously known as Twitter), has expressed admiration for the increasing presence of Indian-origin CEOs. A compilation released by World of Statistics highlighted a notable surge in individuals of Indian origin attaining top-tier executive positions.

The roster showcased a substantial global representation of Indian-origin CEOs, heading numerous companies across various industries. Among the prominent names were Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet, and Satya Nadella, helming Microsoft. The tech giants YouTube and Adobe were also on the list, led by Neal Mohan and Shantanu Narayen, respectively.

A recent inclusion to this prestigious list is Ajay Banga, who secured the position of the 14th President of the World Bank Group.

World of Statistics’ compilation further recognized leaders like Laxman Narasimhan, Ravi Kumar S, and Sanjay Mehrotra, serving as Chiefs of Starbucks, Cognizant, and Micron Technology, respectively.

Notably, Leena Nair, holding the role of Global Chief Executive Officer at the esteemed French luxury fashion house Chanel, also stands among the accomplished Indian-origin corporate figures globally.

The list extended to encompass a range of companies including Albertsons, NetApp, Palo Alto Networks, Arista Networks, Novartis, Honeywell, Flex, Wayfair, OnlyFans, Motorola Mobility, and Vimeo.

Elon Musk, acknowledged for his active presence on the microblogging platform ‘X’, promptly responded to this compilation, succinctly stating, “Impressive.”

Meanwhile, Tesla, under Elon Musk’s leadership, is embarking on plans to establish a manufacturing facility in India aimed at producing an entirely new car model priced at $24,000. Representatives from Tesla are reportedly scheduled to meet with Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal this month to discuss this initiative. The anticipated vehicle is projected to be 25% more affordable than Tesla’s current lowest-priced offering.

In June, Prime Minister Narendra Modi engaged with Elon Musk during their meeting in New York. After the interaction, Elon Musk expressed his admiration for Prime Minister Modi, noting the latter’s genuine commitment to India’s welfare. Musk recognized Prime Minister Modi’s proactive role in encouraging Tesla to make substantial investments within the country’s borders.
