Fortescue Metals Group CEO Elizabeth Gaines is ranked second in Fortune magazine’s 2019 list of the world’s most successful business leaders. Gaines is the first woman to make the annual list. Fortune notes that the pure-play iron ore miner delivered 263 per cent profit growth and revenue growth of 45 per cent in 2018-19, with both metrics rising to record levels in Gaines’ first full financial year at the helm. Meanwhile, Fortescue has achieved a total return of 90 per cent since Gaines was appointed in February 2018, increasing its market value to around $US20bn ($29.4bn).
