Ti­tle: CEO, Bloomberg lp Coun­try: US Age: 73

Af­ter leav­ing Bloomberg in 1981, and spend­ing twelve years as mayor of New York City, Bloomberg has made waves by re­turn­ing to his com­pany as the fig­ure­head. His re­turn brought sev­eral layoffs, man­age­ment shake­ups, and a web­site re­launch. The man with a for­tune worth $42 bil­lion is once again at the cen­ter of rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the dis­tri­bu­tion of fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion.

The man is ef­fec­tively re­spon­si­ble for in­sti­tuted a smok­ing ban in New York City, al­though the ef­forts fiz­zled out last year. Bloomberg has also pledged $50 mil­lion to com­bat gun vi­o­lence through the Every­town for Gun Safety or­ga­ni­za­tion.
