Fortune magazine announced on Monday that Best Buy CEO Corie Barry made its list of the Most Powerful Women in Business. She is No. 18 on the prestigious ranking.
It’s Corie’s first time on the annual list, which looks at a business’ size, its importance in the global economy and its health and direction. Also considered are career arc and social and cultural influence. Only 50 women in the United States were selected, and Corie is the youngest.
Corie became CEO in June, and she’s one of the youngest women to hold the role among Fortune 500 companies.
