Xerox Corp. chairman and CEO Ursula Burns is one of the most powerful women in the world, an annual survey by Forbes shows.

The 54-year-old ranked 14th on the list of the world’s most powerful women, behind media mogul Oprah Winfrey at No. 13. Last year, Burns came in 17th.

The list was topped by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, one of nine heads of state who made the cut. In addition to Burns, 23 corporate CEOs were included.

Rounding out the top five were Dilma Rousseff, president of Brazil; Melinda Gates, co-chairman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; first lady Michelle Obama; and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Burns was named Xerox’s leader in 2009. She began her career at Xerox in 1980 as an engineering intern.
