Billboard's annual Women in Music list, like the industry it reflects, never ceases to change.

Now in its ninth year, this honor roll evolves in many ways. With changes in the executive suites, names move off the list. With the increased importance of key industry sectors, new names appear. This year's list particularly reflects the growing importance of branding partnerships in driving music sales.

It always bears repeating that numerous accomplished executives didn't make the list. The breadth and depth of talent among the scores of nominees for this tally is truly impressive. But the selection of the honorees featured here represents both your nominations and the collective ranking and judgment of Billboard's editors.

And once again we note that this list reads like a roster of the top people in the music business who happen to be women. The range of their achievements reflects the overall impact of all women in our industry. We offer them our congratulations as we present this year's Women in Music report. – Thom Duffy
