Watch out Mark Zuckerberg. Some women are making big moves on being young, smart and making billions from it. Though Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg topped Fortune’s annual 40 Under 40 List, followed by Google’s Larry Page, Google Vice President Marissa Mayer (36 years old) came in at number 20. Libby Wadle (38 years old), Executive Vice President, retail and direct for J.Crew, Mona Mourshed (39 years old), partner in the Middle East office of McKinsey and head of worldwide education for the firm, Erin Burnett (35 years old), host of CNN’s Erin Burnett’sOutFront, Carolyn Everson (39 years old), Vice President, Global Marketing Solutions for Facebook and Katrina Markoff (38 years old), founder and CEO of Vosge Haut-Chocolat also all made it on to the list after Mayer. Mayer and Burnett even got the cover of the print issue.
Besides obviously being successful, this is why you should know about these women:
Marissa Mayer: Mayer was the first female engineer to join Google 12 years ago and the rest is history. Mayer has also expanded her influence outside Google: She’s an angel investor in startups like Minted, One Kings Lane, and Square.
