2 Indian-Americans among Fortune's top 50 people in business
Two Indian-Americans are among the top 50 people in business in 2013 in an annual list compiled by Fortune magazine.
MasterCard's India-born CEO Ajay Banga and the co-CEO of Workday Aneel Bhusri are among the 50 top business leaders in the list which is "filled with executives who defied expectations - buying a newspaper, leaving luxury for Apple - executed big turnarounds and delivered stellar results for their shareholders."
A returnee to the list, 53-year-old Banga is ranked 15th.
Fortune said the move to cashless and mobile transactions is benefiting Banga's credit card company and some think the stock, now at $735 a share, could reach $1,000.
Bhusri, 47, and his cloud-based financials and human resources software company Workday's co-founders and co-CEO Dave Duffield come in on the 37th spot.
Workday sales were way up in 2013, and the stock outperformed rival Oracle.
