On Friday US Banker published its 7th annual ranking of the most powerful women in banking. The list was compiled earlier this summer and some of the women no longer hold the roles they had at the time of publication (Krawcheck) and at this writing some of the banks may cease to exist, at least in their current form(Wachovia).
In addition, the WSJ Deal Journal blog weighs in with its observations here.
Colin Powell once observed that “good managers do
things right; good leaders do the right thing.” The 25 Most Powerful
Women in Banking is U.S. Banker’s annual tribute to the professional
achievements, personal tenacity and influence of top-performing
financial executives. In 2008, the magazine considered the performance
of 4,700 executives before compiling its ranking of the most
influential women, which also includes The 25 Women to Watch, The Top
25 Nonbank Women in Finance and The Top 3 Banking Teams.
