The women on Fortune’s Executive Dream Team
The 2011 Fortune Most Powerful Women list will be announced on September 29. Meantime, a few stars on the 2010 MPW list are on Fortune‘s Executive Dream Team–a fantasy all-star lineup of managers, selected by Fortune editors with assists from recruiters and other business know-it-alls.
I use the term know-it-all with endearment because the selections, revealed today, are good. The non-executive chair of choice: Anne Mulcahy, the former CEO of Xerox , which she rescued from the brink. Mulcahy now chairs Save the Children and is also on the boards of Target and Johnson & Johnson .
The Dream Team Chief People Officer is Susan Chambers, who oversees the employees of Wal-mart –the largest corporate population on earth.
On the reserve Executive Dream Team: Kraft Foods CEO Irene Rosenfeld, Oracle President and CFO Safra Katz, NBC Universal EVP Pat Fili-Krushel, and IBM’s Ginni Rometty, who is a contender to be the next CEO there, after Sam Palmisano retires..
Three women who haven’t appeared on the Fortune MPW list also made the Startup Dream Team: Rent the Runway co-founder Jennifer Hyman, Egon Zehnder recruiter Martha Josephson, and Ariel Investments’ Mellody Hobson, who has plenty of boardroom experience as a director of Starbucks , Estee Lauder , and DreamWorks Animation . These are women to watch.
