Most powerful women in business

Updated: Oct 24, 2018

The popular 50 Most Powerful Women in Business (Fortune’s annual ranking of America’s leading businesswomen) is out. The top ten are:

  1. Irene Rosenfeld, Kraft Foods

  2. Indira Nooyi,  PepsiCo

  3. Patricia Woertz, Archer Daniel Midland

  4. Ellen Kullman, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company(“DuPont”)

  5. Angela Braly,  WellPoint, Inc

  6. Andrea Jung,  Avon

  7. Ginni Rometty,  IBM

  8. Ursula Burns, Xerox

  9. Meg Whitman, Hewlett Packard

  10.  Sherilyn McCoy, Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceuticals

Any surprises? Interesting that the top three are food and beverage executives. There are also 3 on the top ten representing technology companies; three from healthcare/pharma and one from consumer goods.

What role do you think communication played in landing these women in the top ten (several of them have been here before)! Would like to see your comments!
