WE SALUTE: Xerox’s Ursula Burns
July 1st will see Ursula M. Burns assume the post of CEO of Xerox — a move notable for two key reasons. First, this is the first time a woman CEO has succeeded a women CEO of a Fortune 500 company — Burns takes over for outgoing Xerox chief (and Obama-advisor) Anne Mulcahy.
Second, with revenue of nearly $18 billion each year, Xerox becomes the biggest company headed by an African-American woman.
Even though she’s not a man, think Burns totally has a baby face — and wonder if it has contributed to her success.
