Forbes Once Again Selects Nicke Widyawati in the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women List

Jakarta, December 8, 2022 - President Director of PT Pertamina (Persero), Nicke Widyawati, once again listed on Forbes’ World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.

Nicke is one of two Indonesian women included in the list. She is ranked 49th, and the Minister of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia, Sri Mulyani, is ranked 47th. The top position is occupied by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

Forbes explains that the list is determined by four main metrics; money, media, impact, and spheres of influence.

“For political leaders, we weighed gross domestic products and populations; for corporate leaders, revenues and employee counts; and media mentions and reach of all. The result is a collection of women who are fighting the status quo,” Forbes wrote.

Because Pertamina is a state-owned company, Nicke, as a female President Director, is considered capable of leading a company that supports the Indonesian government's decisions. Forbes also stated that Pertamina is the largest gas importer in Asia.

The President Director of PT Pertamina (Persero), Nicke Widyawati, assessed that this recognition was inseparable from all the management and workers' support.

"I am grateful for the good evaluation and recognition from the international community. This is the result of Pertamina's collaboration with all stakeholders and will be a motivation to be better in the future," Nicke said.

Further, when Indonesia hosted the G20 Presidency, Nicke served as Chair of the B20 Energy, Sustainability & Climate Task Force.

Besides Nicke Widyawati, other names from the energy sector include Catherine MacGregor from the French energy company Engie, Sinead Gorman, the CFO of Shell, and Lynn Good from the US energy company Duke Energy.

Previously, Nicke had been included in the lists of most powerful women internationally from Fortune and Forbes in 2020 and 2021.**
