Junko Nakagawa
Executive managing director and CFO
Nomura Holdings, Inc.
2011 Global Rank: 34
Country: Japan

A promotion to CFO made her the first woman to hold the post in Nomura Holdings' 85-year history. She was also named the first female executive managing director on the board, on which she serves with four men.
