PRAIRIE, MNBlack Enterprise magazine recently named Clarence Nunn, chief commercial officer for GE Capital, Americas to its list of 100 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America.

Published in the magazine's September issue, the listing includes CEOs and a host of top executives that significantly contribute to their company's revenues. Each executive holds a senior management position at one of the top 1,000 publicly traded companies or at an international corporation grossing revenues of $1 billion or more.

"When we published our first list of top black executives in 1988, we identified just 25 people, with no CEOs and no women on the list," said Black Enterprise CEO Earl Graves. "Our current list of 100 men and women in executive leadership includes eight CEOs, and were culled from a pool of nearly 1,000 candidates. This is evidence of the undeniable progress, achievements, and contributions of black executive talent to the global competitiveness of America's largest companies."

Nunn and other honorees recently attended a special recognition at the New York Stock Exchange.
