HEROES: Marc Benioff
Benioff, CEO of breakthrough enterprise cloud company salesforce.com, is a savvy businessman and he's not afraid to let people know it. But his vision of "the end of software" was remarkably prescient, and he had the gumption to use the SaaS model successfully against big enterprise vendors like SAP and Microsoft. He is also a respected philanthropist. Through his Salesforce Foundation, the company contributes one percent of profits, equity and employee hours back to the community.
