Anne Mulcahy
Age: 56
Job now: CEO, Xerox

Recruiters say she's young, experienced and looks ready to leave. Mulcahy took over the top spot at Xerox in 2001 after spending her entire career at the Norwalk, Conn.-based company. She has earned praise for restoring the technology maker to profitability by meeting directly with customers, trimming bloated expenses, and cutting nearly 30,000 employees.

Recruiters point to her hand-picked successor Ursula Burns as evidence Mulcahy could take a new challenge. It's a long shot, but did someone say Yahoo?
