Title: President and CEO (becomes Chairman May 7)
Company rank: 388
Compensation: $6 million
There are no speed limits for Paula Rosput Reynolds, the CEO of Safeco. She's been making big moves since she arrived at the $6 billion property and casualty insurance company in 2006. But that doesn't mean she's reckless.
Reynolds has already made headway on the technology and innovation front. Last June the company made headlines with Teensurance, a high-tech program that comes with the benefits of GPS tracking and text message alerts for caregivers of young speeding drivers. Reynolds also sold off Safeco's headquarters in 2007 and is now leasing office space to reduce debt. NEXT: Christina Gold
