  • Current title: President of J.Crew Brand
  • Year on list (rank): 2011 (No. 23)

Wadle has been steadily climbing through the ranks at the preppy fashion powerhouse since she arrived in 2004. In her new role as president of the J.Crew Brand, she replaces Tracy Gardner, who left in 2010. The job includes oversight of both the retail and direct businesses of J.Crew, Crewcuts and the J.Crew factory outlet -- a division Wadle ran in the mid-2000s, tripling sales. J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler called the promotion a "recognition of the team," and "not at all any succession plan," but industry observers saw it as Wadle moving one step closer to the CEO spot.
