Jack in the Box Ranks Among Top Companies for Female Execs

Jack in the Box Inc. is the top company in San Diego County when it comes to putting women in leadership positions.

Some 35 percent of Jack’s directors and executive officers are women, according to a survey released Oct. 16 by the UC Davis Graduate School of Management. The school did the research in cooperation with the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs and Executives.

The school researched Securities and Exchange Commission filings from the 400 largest public companies in California.

Of 36 San Diego County companies surveyed, a dozen had no women in top executive positions or on the board.

The same ratio applied statewide: Nearly one in three companies had no women executives or directors.

Linda Lang is chief executive officer and chairman of the board at Jack in the Box. Only 13 of the 400 California companies studied had a woman chief executive.

Behind Jack in the Box in the rankings were San Diego County’s AMN Healthcare Services Inc., Charlotte Russe Holding Inc., Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Gen-Probe Inc.

Rounding out the top 10 San Diego County companies were Biomed Realty Trust Inc., Ligand Pharmaceuticals Inc., Phoenix Footwear Group Inc., Invitrogen Corp. and Cymer Inc.

Qualcomm Inc. ranked 122nd with 13.6 percent of its top managers and directors women, while SAIC ranked 136th with 13 percent.

Sempra Energy, the county’s biggest company in terms of revenue, ranked 272nd, with 5 percent of its top managers and directors women.

In the statewide ranking, Jack in the Box was fifth best, out of 400, in putting women in leadership positions.
