Indonesia's $70-billion-in-revenue state oil and gas conglomerate recently renewed Agustiawan's contract, validating her leadership and earning her a spot at No. 6 on this year's list, but from 19 a year ago. She is also the first female CEO to run this Fortune Global 500 company, which beat its 2012 earnings target, with net profits up 15% to $2.7 billion—the highest profits in the company's 45-year history. A $5 billion global bond issued by Agustiawan in May was oversubscribed four times.
