For the first time in D CEO’s history, its CEO of the Year is a woman: Lori Ryerkerk, a Southeast Texas resident and the top executive at Celanese Corp., a $6.3 billion materials conglomerate based in Irving.

She represents the new breed of chief executive—an authentic leader who genuinely wants to make a difference. Especially after the chaotic year we’ve all had, she is the kind of CEO who will help propel us into the future.
