Second helping for breakfast

Maria Anna Muller is such a remarkable individual that Die Zeit has dedicated a whole article to her (http://www.zeit.de/karriere/beruf/2010-02/frauen-fuehrungsposition-flughafen). Why? She is Germany’s sole female airport manager (at Rostock-Laage). The real purpose of the article was to look at the airport’s weak financial position and to see how it could be turned around. This being so, why then does the article mention as its first sentence the fact that the manager is a woman? The insinuation (to my cynical thought processes) is inevitable: woman boss – failing company. Feel free to draw your own conclusions.
