Relentless. Intense. Driven. These are some of the words used to describe Google CEO Larry Page, who tops Adweek's inaugural Power 100 list. During Page's second stint at Google's top job, the company's market cap nearly doubled. With his eye on products that can have lasting global impact, he's a prime example of how the very notion of power has been disrupted by technology.
Page is in good company, with Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg rounding out the top three. But plenty of old-school execs have successfully ushered their companies into the digital age—Rupert Murdoch comes in at No. 6. Described as a "legend" but also a "maverick," the 84-year-old CEO is intent on growing his media empire, which includes 21st Century Fox and News Corp.
Which traits do you believe are most important for today's CEOs and other workplace leaders? Are the best executives hands-on, or do they recruit and rely on the right teams to get the job done? How important is it for a leader to maintain a high public profile?
