Larry Page

1) Larry Page

Notable Quote – Many leaders of big organizations, I think, don’t believe that change is possible. But if you look at history, things do change, and if your business is static, you’re likely to have issues.

Mark G. Parker

2) Mark G. Parker

Notable Quote – “My goal was never to just create a company. A lot of people misinterpret that, as if I don’t care about revenue or profit or any of those things. But what not being ‘just’ a company means to me is building something that actually makes a really big change in the world.”

Scott Scherr

5) Scott Scherr

Company – Ultimate Software

Hugh Grant

6) Hugh Grant

Insight Global

9) Glenn Johnson

Company – Insight Global

Tim Cook

10) Tim Cook

Notable Quote –Too often people think about intuition as the same as relying on luck or faith. At least as I see it, nothing could be further from the truth.

Dara Khosrowshahi

Craig Jelinek

13) Craig Jelinek

Company – Costco


14) John Legere

Company – T Mobile

John Legere

15) Jim Weddle

Calvin McDonald

18) Mark Weinberger

Company – EY

Company – SolarCity

Lyndon Rive

21) Marc Benioff

Company – Salesforce

Notable Quote – “I believe a balanced life is essential, and I try to make sure that all of our employees know that and live that way. It’s crucial to me as a manager that I help ensure that our employees are as successful as our customers and partners…  employees today expect more from the companies for whom they work. Why shouldn’t your workplace reflect your values? Why is ‘giving back’ not a part of our jobs? The answer for us is to integrate philanthropy with work.”

Notable Quote – “I think the key to success is vision that adjusts on the way, but doesn’t at all falter. It’s about not compromising and following your gut to a certain degree, based on knowledge, instinct, etc. And not listing to the naysayers…. You develop strength through adversity. You have to keep moving towards your goal through huge obstacles. It’s not easy. Especially a business like this where there are so many moving parts. You have to build a good team and know who’s good and not good and you have to keep raising the bar on your life. For me it’s always, ‘I have to get up and do a little better today and go to work to learn.”

Mickey Drexler
