<h1>Mauro Porcini</h1>
<strong>Chief design officer, PepsiCo</strong>

The dapper Italian started a new gig this summer at PepsiCo as the company's first chief design officer. Trailblazing a role at a <em>Fortune</em> 500 enterprise is nothing new for Porcini. Prior to PepsiCo, he spent 10 years at 3M, where he started as a design manager and worked his way up to become the company's first chief design officer. The self-described change agent evangelizes for the incorporation of design principles into all of an organization's processes -- something he'll do from his powerful perch at PepsiCo to drive growth and innovation. 

<strong>Clotheshorse: </strong>Porcini owns 90 pairs of shoes and 30 watches.
