The most notable announcement in December came from General Motors which announced that retiring CEO Dan Akerson will be replaced by Mary Barra, the company’s first female CEO, and in fact, the first female CEO of a global auto maker.

According to Challenger’s data, 159 female CEOs left their posts in 2013. Of those, 44 were replaced by other women.
