Title: Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Country: US Age: 69
Janet Yellen is also known as the sole guardian of the US economy. As the head of the Federal Reserve, she is responsible for adding 300,000 jobs in one single month, and lowering unemployment to under 5 percent.
Very few leaders in the finance industry have a profound impact on the Wall Street, investors and company executives worldwide. Many worry that US might once again fall into a recession, but Yellen is confident that it’s unlikely for decades to come.
