On the heels of naming Salesforce at the top of its Future 50 list of innovators, the #15 Most Admired Company and #1 on its 2018 100 Best Companies to Work For list, Fortune has named Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff as #21 on its World Greatest Leaders list.
“The corporate world hasn’t quite seen the likes of him before,” Fortune reports. “He pushes product with zany zeal: Parties, rock bands, animatronic mascots, and candy emblazoned with his company’s logo all are part of his repertoire. So are his causes: gender parity in compensation, progressive politics, mindful work environments, corporate philanthropy, and a sense of companywide family, or Ohana.”
In 2017, Fortune recognized Marc by ranking him #3 on its Businessperson of the Year list, taking note of his "creating a new model for selling software."
