Which business leader you admire most? For me it’s:
1. SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son
2. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella
3. Tesla Motors, SpaceX, Hyperloop Elon Musk
4. Amazon Blue Origin Jeff Bezos
5. Tencent Pony Ma
Son is the real Warren Buffet but global. Able to add value in both first and third world and profit (Alibaba) from China and next India. (who else does that? lol)
Nadella is a Transformer Extraordinaire. Turning around a massive giant like former business hero Jack Welch and GE but without the accolades (why is that you need to ask yourself?
Musk is like the Jesus of Business and will sacrifice his legacy for what he believes in (replacing dirty fuels with clean replacements and fighting legacy investment in drilling, refining, filling stations, auto engineering, the entire Middle East, American, Chinese and European oil industry and the laws of physics-lethargy of change ‘an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. The outside force is him and whoever he can co-opt)
Jeff Bezos is a strategic leader who is so capable that he, almost singlehandedly, is keeping the US ahead of China. His vision and leadership established the US as the leader in ecommerce..but just barely. Tencent and Alibaba are right behind and whoever wins, wins very big indeed. In fact, without the incredible innovation that Tencent and Alibaba bring, US corporations would be nowhere as competitive as they are. So much thanks to all in this important race
Pony Ma is the new Zuckerberg. A master at giving people what they want. Wise beyond his years and focused on the best user experience possible and avoiding the very enticing traps of ad revenue. A man with a real vision that will make this one of the top 3 corporations in the world in short time.
