Two Indians raking big moolah as per Forbes top-paid young CEOs list


Forbes recently released the top-paid young CEOs list that features two Indians (or should I say Indian origin) – Adobe’s Shantanu Narayen and Cognizant’s Francisco D’Souza.

The list that features 15 top-paid young CEOs ranks Narayen at 5th and D’Souza at the 15th position. In terms of age, D’Souza is the youngest of the 15 CEOs at 39.
