IBM boss Ginni Rometty, 57, has topped the Fortune list of world's most powerful businesswomen in 2014 and this, despite a fall in IBM's revenues recently. The list is compiled based on the size, importance and direction of the business these powerful women are managing.
While India-born CEO of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi, 58, occupied the third position, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg slipped to the tenth position from fifth last year, despite being the highest paid.
Another big blow was to Marissa Mayer, 39, who slipped to 16th position from 8th position following doubts of the real value of Yahoo! of which she is the chief executive and president.
Mayer, 39, was struck in controversy after telling her staff to not work from home because it was bad for the business.Reuters
