  Ursula Burns, CEO and chairman of Xerox, was ranked 17th on this year’s list. In her five years as CEO, Ursula Burns has managed to make Xerox a powerful and profitable company. In a virtually paperless society, that is no small feat. 

Burns helped Xerox generate adjusted earnings per share of $1.09, up from $1.02 in 2012, and post $21.4 billion in full-year revenue. More

Today, September 20th, just also happens to be her birthday! Congratulations, Mrs. Burns, you’re an inspiration.
