Berlusconi, daughter of Italy’s ex-Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, has returned her family-owned holding company, Fininvest—businesses span television, radio, film, publishing, banking, biotechnology, and a soccer team—to profitability last year after two years in the red. She did it in part by selling off a 7.8% stake in TV broadcaster Mediaset and replacing the CEO of the group’s core business, Mondadori, Italy’s leading book and magazine publisher, where she is pushing an aggressive digital transformation. Also on the cards this year: a sale of 48% stake in the group’s world famous soccer club, A.C. Milan, for $530 million. —Rupali Arora
