2011 Businessperson of the Year – 1. Howard D. Schultz (2) – FORTUNE

“Another year and I did not make Fortune’s business person of the year list. Hello, I’m here!

Outside of brains, business savvy, charisma, and financial wizardry, what does Howard Schultz have that I don’t have?

Since returning to Starbucks in 2008, Fortune’s 2011 Businessperson of the Year has restored the iconic company he founded and taken it to new heights, posting record revenue and profits. Schultz distinguished himself in another way in 2011, taking steps to raise funds for job creation and to fight political dysfunction in Washington. The White House paid attention.”

LinkedIn founder and chairman, Reid Hoffman is number 4. Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is number 6.
