Jack
Dorsey

CEO / Co-Founder

After years of struggling with slowing user growth, Dorsey has overseen a resurgence at Twitter. User numbers are up, and the company’s media partnership roster keeps growing as well. Just this year, Twitter announced a new 2020 Olympics partnership with NBC, as well as new and expanded signings with Univision, Viacom and Live Nation, among others. But while Twitter has stepped up its battle against disinformation, Dorsey continues to be criticized for not taking a tougher stance on the issue — although he did win praise in October for banning political advertising. In addition to his responsibilities at Twitter, Dorsey is the CEO of payment provider Square, which he launched in 2010. That company sold off food-delivery service Caviar this summer.
