Harold "Terry" McGraw III, Chairman and president-CEO, McGraw-Hill Cos.

McGraw joined McGraw-Hill Cos. in 1980 and took the helm in 1998. The continued deterioration of BusinessWeek's advertising pages prompted last month's decision to sell the iconic publication, founded in 1929, to Bloomberg LP. The transaction appears to be another step in McGraw-Hill's decades-long transformation into an information services company rather than one primarily reliant on advertising dollars.
