Evan
Spiegel

Co-Founder / CEO

Spiegel has proven himself to be a great product-driven CEO, turning Snapchat from a onetime quirky photo-sharing app into a social-media sensation with over 190 million daily users that beckons some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, brands and media partners — including BuzzFeed, CNN, ESPN and Vice — to the company’s platform. Building a sustainable business hasn’t come as easy to the 28-year-old new dad, now one of the world’s youngest billionaires, who struggled in 2018 to respond to a wave of user defections after an unpopular app redesign. And while Snap’s shares have been hovering below their IPO price for most of the year, the company’s financials have been improving in light of its growing advertising business.
