Three women with strong connections to the building-products industry are among Fortune magazine’s list of the Most Powerful Women, which was released on Thursday.

No. 5 on the list is Ellen Kullman, 59, the CEO and chairman of DuPont. She was No. 5 on the list last year as well.

DuPont’s revenue fell slightly last year to $36 billion, while its profits dropped 25 percent, to $3.6 billion.

Two Home Depot executives also made the list.

Ann-Marie Campbell, 50, president of the company’s southern division, is No. 37, and  Crystal Hanlon, 50, president of the company’s northern division, is No. 40. Campbell was No. 38 on last year’s list, while Hanlon is making her first appearance.

According to Fortune, Campbell’s division is now driving about one-third of total revenues at the retailer, whose same-store sales rose 5.7 percent in 2015’s second quarter. Home Depot had revenues of $83.2 billion in 2014. Hanlon’s division, which covers the Northeast and Midwest, had estimated revenues of $27 billion in 2014.
