Marissa Mayer is profiled as a “visionary” in the magazine’s annual spread of influential women and newsmakers from 2009. CEO Eric Schmidt is quoted in the article as saying: “It’s pretty hard to overstate her impact…She built the team that designs the products we all use.”

This morning on the Today Show (video), she found herself in good company on the couch among other listmakers Serena Williams and Maya Angelou, and First Lady Michelle Obama earned a special recognition within the list.
