The 25 Most Influential Executives Of 2015

Steven Burke

10. Marc Benioff

Chairman, CEO

Salesforce.com

Is Marc Benioff interested in selling Salesforce.com? Microsoft was reportedly willing to pay $55 billion. But it wasn't enough for Benioff, who continues to drive big enterprise sales growth long after he took the title of cloud computing champion. Under Benioff's leadership, Salesforce.com became the fastest enterprise software maker to hit a $6 billion run rate. Salesforce.com is far more than a CRM company now with full-fledged marketing, services, community and analytics offerings. Besides, anyone who knows Benioff knows his ambition is to destroy -- not to partner -- with legacy software makers like Microsoft and Oracle.
