Title: Chairman and CEO
Company: Sara Lee
Compensation: $4.94 millionWith a few rare exceptions, losing extra weight rarely means packing on sausages and hot dogs. But since 2005, Brenda Barnes has continued to focus on food aisle products like Jimmy Dean sausages and Ball Park hot dogs and shed brands like Hanes to decrease Sara Lee's bulk. Before she took over as the company's personal trainer, Barnes famously left her job at PepsiCo after 22 years and took a six-year leave to raise her three children.
