Marissa Mayer

CEO, Yahoo

Marissa Mayer was employee number 20 at Google and the company's first female engineer. She's now leading the charge at Yahoo, turning around the flagging Internet company with new acquistions like blogging platform Tumblr, which it acquired for $1.1 billion, and redesigned products.
