Meg
Whitman

CEO

The Silicon Valley veteran who spent years at Hewlett Packard is making a huge bet that Jeffrey Katzenberg’s brainchild will represent nothing less than a new category in the tech and entertainment space. She leads the well-funded startup, which raised more than a billion dollars for content in its first year. It has also been making headlines for spending a fortune on original content from big-ticket movie and TV talent that will only be watched on smartphones.

In her 10 years as president and CEO of eBay, she grew the company to some $8 billion in annual revenue.
