THE THREE MOST POWERFUL AMERICAN CEOS UNDER 40

Becoming a CEO of a multinational corporation is the ultimate dream for many hard working citizens. To become CEO means you have reached the top of your game, but it can often feel like just a pipe dream. However, it’s important to remember that even the world’s most influential CEOs had to start somewhere, and that its their level of determination that has set them apart from the rest.

Begin thinking like a CEO and you too could one day see yourself at the top.

Forbes recently took a look at America’s three most powerful CEOs under the age of 40.

Larry Page

When Larry Page was a student at Stanford University in 1998 he created a new search engine with his friend Sergey Brin. At the time it was called BackRub, but as their dream grew so did the name. Playing on the mathematical term ‘googol’ for a one followed by 100 zeros, the duo decided Google was a more appropriate name, as it represented where they wanted to take their company. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, Page tops the list of America’s most powerful young CEOs.

Mark Zuckerberg

At just 28, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has achieved an enormous amount in a short period of time, and comes in second on the list. Despite his age, Forbes placed the computer programmer as the 36th richest American and the 25th most powerful person on the planet.

Marissa Mayer

Coming in third place – and the only female to enter the list – is the new president and CEO of Yahoo!. Having previously spent 13 years as an engineer for Google, Mayer has made a name for herself in the corporate world in recent times, establishing herself on the board of several prestigious companies.
