Mark
Zuckerberg

Founder / Chairman / CEO

As the founder and leader of Facebook (now with 2.6 billion monthly active users), Zuckerberg is one of the world’s most powerful and influential people, with a fortune estimated to hover around the $100 billion range. He is also one of the most scrutinized and maligned corporate execs on the planet, enduring attacks from the both sides of the political spectrum, as well as government entities from the European Union to the FTC. The latter first fined Facebook $5 billion for privacy violations in 2019, then in 2020 filed lawsuits in coordination with dozens of state attorneys that assert the company broke U.S. antitrust laws with its acquisitions of Instagram and Whatsapp. In the wake of nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd, he announced Facebook would commit an additional $10 million to groups advocating for racial justice, on top of the $40 million a year the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative has been giving to similar causes.
