Chairman and CEO, Vanguard

McNabb's numbers speak for themselves. Since he took the helm in 2008 -- just weeks before Lehman Brothers collapsed -- Vanguard has quietly become the nation's largest mutual fund company, with $2.2 trillion in global assets under management, winning investors with rock-bottom rates at a time of low returns. This year, Vanguard raked in more cash through September -- $113 billion -- than it has in any other yearlong period in its 37-year history. Its target-date funds are a hit, and its exchange traded-fund business surged this year, igniting an ETF price war among Vanguard, industry leader BlackRock, and others. --EF
