One could say Bill McDermott is a natural-born entrepreneur. When he was 16, he began working at a deli and soon owned the business. Today, McDermott is the CEO of SAP (sap), a software company that placed number 462 on our 2016 Global 500 list. He is no stranger to hard work, having grown up in a working-class home. He has a uniquely optimistic spirit, and believes a person becomes a serious leader when they can control their mind and let their will supersede.
