David Karp

#13 David Karp

Company: Tumblr

Age: 27

Karp created the short-form blogging platform in reaction to Facebook, which he regards as 'insanely restrictive.' He sees Tumblr as a reflection of New York's rich creativity, and never wants to leave: 'That is so much of what Tumblr is, a media network, a home for tens of millions of creators.'

The recent Williamsburg transplant (and one-time J.Crew model) sold his company to Yahoo for $US1.1 billion earlier this year. Not bad for a high school dropout.

Sexiest CEOs alive

There are some CEOs that can make running a company look ridiculously easy.

Then there are some who can do it with, well, a certain je ne sais quoi.

Business Insider has scoured the world to find the sexiest Chief Executives on the planet.

Sexiness is a subjective measure — and it’s not just about

looks. It’s also about success, power, ambition, charisma, altruism,

fashion sense, and style.

For this ranking, Business Insider have also only included CEOs of

companies with at least 100 employees.
