Marillyn Hewson

Title: President and CEO
Company: Lockheed Martin
Country: USA

Hewson is making a big push to increase international sales, which make up 17% of revenue. (Pretty much everything else is sold to the U.S. government.) The defense contractor has 10 international buyers for its F-35 fighter jet. But even when Lockheed Martin (lmt, +0.32%) doesn’t sell to foreign clients, its products have a huge indirect impact on global diplomacy.
