France — Manpower President is world's 42nd most powerful woman in business

11 September 2009

Francoise Gri, President of Manpower France, has just been named to Fortune's 'Global Power 50' list of the most powerful women in business for the sixth consecutive year.

Fortune magazine ranks the 50 most powerful women in global business who not only preside over influential businesses, but also stand out in what remain male-dominated industries. The magazine ranks honorees based on the size, importance and health of their companies in the global economy; their career momentum; and their cultural and social influence.

Jeff Joerres, Manpower Inc. Chairman and CEO said, "Francoise's repeated recognition among the world's best and brightest women business leaders underscores her significant accomplishments at Manpower, as well as her contribution to the discussion of labour policy in the French market."
Gri joined Manpower Inc. in February of 2007 as President of Manpower France.

Earlier this year, Gri was awarded with the Chevalier de l'Ordre National de la Legion d'Honneur Medal in recognition of her achievements as a leading business woman. This distinction is the French equivalent of being knighted. In 2003, she received the Chevalier de l'Ordre National du Merite (Order of Chivalry) from the then French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin.
