New Delhi, Aug 27 (IANS) Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA ) and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is impressed at the way Indian-origin people have taken over as CEOs of most of the top tech companies, as well as some of the non-tech organisations, and the list is only growing.By holding top positions, the Indian-origin people are earning millions of dollars which puts them among the highest paid CEOs in the US.

When the World of Statistics posted on X (formerly Twitter) the list of Indian-origin people at top companies, Musk reacted late on Saturday: “Impressive”.

His followers reacted, saying “Indians are some of the hardest working people”.

India is even the “CEO of Moon's South Pole,” a Musk follower chuckled, after the country successfully landed its Chandrayaan-3 Moon mission.

Leena Nair broke all barriers by becoming the first ever Indian-origin global CEO of French luxury fashion house, Chanel. While Laxman Narasimhan is the CEO of Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX ), Amrapali 'Ami' Gan became the CEO of adult entertainment platform OnlyFans (before stepping down in July this year).

Anjali Sud is the CEO of Vimeo (NASDAQ: VMEO ), the online video platform and Rangarajan Raghuram is the CEO of VMware.
