Marissa Mayer

Marissa Mayer is Vice-President of Search Products & User Experience at Google.

Being an expert in computer science has guided her to become one of the chief decision-makers in the company. If a major idea or change is going to happen, like Gmail and Google Earth, it has to get past Mayer first. According to Glamour Magazine, which featured the stylish VP as a 2009 Woman of the Year, Mayer “built the team” responsible for many of Google’s products.

Her goals? Mayer says she wants more women to get into the tech field and to learn and grow while they’re in it.
