10Marissa Mayer

 “Success is never getting to the bottom of your to-do list.”

Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo! and former Google executive, is one of the youngest most successful businesswomen in the world. She has seen her company’s stock prices double in the 14 months since her

debut as CEO and has initiated many changes in the company such as a ban on telecommuters and stricter performance reviews in order to encourage more valuable work time.

She recently acquired Tumblr for $1.1 billion, just one of many of her acquisitions as CEO. Mayer is expected to lead Yahoo! to greater heights and much higher stock prices in the near future.
