Duke Energy CEO and chairman Lynn Good has moved up two notches, to 11th place, in Fortune’s annual list of the most powerful women.
Good became Duke’s chief executive and president in mid-2013, taking over one of the largest U.S. electric utilities in a male-dominated industry. Good first made the list in 2013, at 16th, and moved to 13th the next two years.
Fortune credited Duke with adding more renewable energy under Good’s leadership and investing another $3 billion in solar and wind over the next five years. It also cited Duke’s upcoming $4.9 billion acquisition of Charlotte-based Piedmont Natural Gas, which is expected to close by the end of the year.
Mary Mack, senior executive vice president and head of community banking at Wells Fargo, ranked 43rd on this year’s list and Bank of America vice chairman Anne Finucane 50th. General Motors CEO Mary Barra topped the list for a second time.
