Nikesh Arora
Company: Google
Current CEO: Larry Page

Go to the Google management page. Scroll down through the pictures and bios of Larry Page, Eric Schmidt, and Sergey Brin. Then scroll down one more, and you'll see Nikesh Arora, Google's senior vice president and chief business officer. Arora has been floated by the Wall Street Journal's AllThingsD as a potential successor to Carol Bartz at Yahoo, but for the moment he seems to be doing just fine at Google. His Twitter bio is simple: "Google :)". With career prospects like this, there's no doubt he has a lot to smile about.
