Marillyn Hewson, Chairman, President, and CEO of Lockheed Martin, picks up top honors, followed by Mary Barra, Chairman and CEO of General Motors, in second place and Abigail Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Fidelity Investments in third.

The magazine compiles the list by ranking leaders by criteria that include the size and importance of the woman’s business in the global economy, the business’s health, the path of the woman’s career and influence on society and culture.

This year, the ranking has seven newcomers, two returnees, and CEOs controlling just under $1 trillion in market cap.
