Angela Ahrendts (senior vice president of Apple's physical and online stores) jumped from 29 to 16 in the ?Most Powerful Women? ranking (?Most Powerful Women?), gives Fortune.
Just a year ago as head of Apple stores, the former CEO of Burberry is making her mark on the $ 183 billion tech giant (the company's cash figure now exceeds $ 200 billion). Ahrendts led the retail launch of the Apple Watch, which received mixed reviews. His other focus has been on integrating Apple's online and retail divisions, as well as expanding its presence in China. She is being well paid to do this: the first woman on Apple's management team took home $ 73.4 million in cash and shares in 2014.
This whole moneylender even made Ahrendts the highest-paid woman in the United States in 2014.
First place in the ranking Mary Barra (CEO of GM), followed by Indra Nooyi (CEO of PepsiCo) and Ginni Rometty (CEO and President of IBM). In the list, of course, there are still several names linked to the technology sector, such as Meg Whitman (HP CEO; 7 position) and Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook COO; 8 position).
