Sheryl
Sandberg

COO

Facebook’s COO has been key to the social-media behemoth’s growth, which includes generating close to $56 billion in revenue in 2018 and growing overall profits for that year to $22 billion. However, Sandberg’s role in the company’s crisis response hasn’t always been smooth sailing. In late 2018, news broke that she had personally asked for opposition research on George Soros, suggesting the Jewish billionaire was looking to financially benefit from efforts to regulate the platform. Sandberg is in talks to meet with Congress to discuss Facebook’s plans for a new cryptocurrency called libra. She has given some $286 million to charity since 2014, when she joined the Giving Pledge, the promise by billionaires to donate half their fortune during their life or upon their death.
