The Q.C.'s powerful ladies

Posted By on Mon, Oct 5, 2009 at 2:23 PM

Fortune magazine has made their decision, and we're happy to spread the word: Several Charlotte women rank near the top of the magazine's "50 Most Powerful Women in Business" list.

Three Charlotte-area executives have been named to Fortune magazine’s annual list of the 50 most powerful women in business.

Barbara Desoer, president of Bank of America Corp.’s home-loans unit, ranked No. 25. That’s up from her No. 27 ranking on last year’s list.

Also, Linda Hudson, president of BAE Systems Inc.’s Land and Armaments division, ranks No. 47 on Fortune’s list. She wasn’t included in the magazine’s rankings last year.

BAE Systems Land and Armaments, based in Virginia, has a large presence in Union County.

Indra Nooyi, chairman and chief executive of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE:PEP), retains her No. 1 Fortune ranking of a year ago.

Two local executives were dropped from this year’s list. Amy Brinkley, former global risk executive at BofA, came in at No. 21 last year. She left the bank this summer.

And Cece Sutton, former head of retail and small-business banking at Wachovia Corp., ranked No. 33 last year. Sutton is currently head of Morgan Stanley’s retail banking group.
