Fortune has placed Sheri McCoy, Avon’s new CEO taking over from Andrea Jung, at No. 17 on its 2012 list of “50 Most Powerful Women”. This is McCoy’s 5th consecutive year to earn a spot on the list. Fortune has been producing its “50 Most Powerful Women” for 15 years. Criteria for the list includes: the size and importance of the woman’s business in the global economy, the health and direction of the business, the arc of the woman’s career—résumé and runway ahead—as well as societal and cultural influence.
McCoy left Johnson & Johnson this past April to take on the role of CEO at Avon.
She is among some of the most brilliant and well respected women in business representing companies like Google, Zerox, HP, Fidelity, P&G, Disney, Yahoo, IBM, PepsiCo and more.
