Bonin Bough, 33
Senior global director of digital and social media, Pepsico

Bough started telling Fortune 500 companies how to go digital more than a decade ago. Now, as a top social media strategist for PepsiCo, he has the ear of CEO Indra Nooyi. A lifelong early adopter, he owns 14 different tablets and travels with at least six mobile devices. "I use a different one every day. I love interface," he says. "If all you own is a BlackBerry and you're in this space, you should quit."
