Xerox Chairman and CEO Ursula Burns is one of the most powerful women in the world, according to an annual survey by Forbes.

Burns, 55, ranked 22nd on the list. Last year, she ranked No. 14. Forbes bills the list as an “annual guide to the extraordinary icons and leaders, groundbreakers and ceiling crashers who command the world stage.”

Burns was cited for her efforts to drive profitability at Xerox at a time when the number of paper copies being created is shrinking. To help the company grow, Burns has said she is focused on a technology-driven, services-led portfolio.

Burns took the helm at Xerox in 2009. She began her career there in 1980 as an engineering intern.

The list was topped by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Others on the list included former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, first lady Michelle Obama, Beyonce Knowles and Queen Elizabeth II.
