31 Days of Notable Women- Ellen Kullman-CEO of DuPont


Ellen Kullman of DuPontEllen Kullman, the CEO of DuPont, has been named the fifth most powerful woman in business by Fortune Magazine. DuPont’s share price was in a 10-year slump when she took over in 2009. Since then, she’s moved the 212-year-old company into higher-margin areas like nutrition, advanced materials, and bioscience. She sold the auto paints unit in 2013 and will shed performance chemicals like Teflon and Freon next year. Investors seem to like the moves: DuPont’s market cap has more than doubled during her tenure.
