Margaret C. Whitman
Title: President and CEO
Company: eBay
Age: 50
Compensation: $3.10 million (2005)

But lately the company's position hasn't been so enviable: its growth has slowed, and many continue to question the $2.6 billion acquisition of Skype. Still, Whitman continues to hold on as one of the longest serving CEOs in the tech world.
