12. Cesar Conde
President, Univision Networks
Age: 36
Rank change: Up
Industry: Media

Since becoming president of Hispanic media giant Univision Networks last year, the former M&A banker and Wharton grad has been busy: He launched an original-programming studio last December, got married in January (to one of Univison's local anchors), and for the first time ever, led the flagship network to become the most-watched network among 18- to 49-year-olds -- regardless of language -- for an entire week this past summer, beating ABC, NBC, and CBS.

Bold promise: Univision is the fifth-most-watched network in the U.S.; Conde claims it will hit the top spot within five years.
