Jamie Dimon, #24
Dimon is CEO of one of the largest banks in the world. As such, his opinion and his position wield significant influence, particularly in the U.S. banking community and in Washington.
Dimon reportedly turned down the role of Treasury Secretary in Donald Trump’s administration, but is chairman of the Business Roundtable, which meets frequently with President Trump.
Publicly vocal about his opinions, Dimon is a proponent of reducing Dodd-Frank, but is frustrated with the lack of ability to get things done in Washington. He is concerned that real household wages have weakened in the past decade, while the middle class has shrunk as a proportion of the U.S. population. He feels CEOs should take a proactive approach to reducing the gap between rich and poor and reviving confidence in the institution of business through education and training.
