Al Dunlap
Then: The turnaround artist became known as "Chainsaw Al" for his cost-cutting at Scott Paper and Crown Zellerbach. He was ousted as CEO of Sunbeam in 1998 amid an accounting brouhaha.

Now: At 73, he's more in touch with his charitable side. He and his wife, Judith, donated $5 million toward the Dunlap Success Center at Florida State and another $5 million to build the Dunlap Cancer Center in Eau Claire, Wis., Judith's hometown. A lifelong dog lover, Dunlap recently got a new German shepherd after mourning the loss of his last one. "I lay down with her on the floor when they gave her the shot to put her to sleep," he says. "It was embarrassing. I'm a tough guy, and I'm crying like a baby."
