During her 10-year tenure as chief executive officer of Avon Products Inc., Andrea Jung has adroitly navigated the company through some tough times. But even she had never experienced anything close to the global economic implosion that rocked 2009. Where others saw misfortune, however, Jung—one of the longest-serving ceo’s in the beauty industry—saw opportunity.

Beauty sales gained 14 percent to $1.78 billion, compared with the year-ago quarter, on active representative growth of 6 percent, which includes gains in all regions but China.
