Kelly, Reinhart make Financial Times Women At The Top list – The top 50 Women in World Business

Australian businesswomen Gail Kelly, CEO of Westpac Group (Number 12) and Gina Reinhart, CEO of Hancock Prospecting (number 27) have made it onto the 2011 Financial Times Women At The Top list – alongside other leaders of enterprise from across the Globe.  The list is somewhat of a United Nations of business – with the top spot this year going to USA’s Irene Rosenfeld, CEO of Kraft Foods, followed by Turkey’s Gula Sabanci, CEO of Sabanci Holding and India’s Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo.

For the Aussies on the list, it’s recognition of a lifetime’s work; though Kelly’s upbringing in South Africa and career shift from school teacher to bank teller to CEO of one of the world’s top 20 commercial banks is in stark contrast to Reinhart, who as the only daughter of Australian mining pioneer, Lang Hancock, cut her teeth on prospecting and is now a vocal spokesperson for Australia’s resources industry.
