Top executives to watch in 2021: Elon Musk, Daniel Garside, and more
The final months of 2020 have meant several businesses and top-rated executives from various industries are looking for emerging ideas as we head into the new year. Additionally, there has been major development and activities streaming from some markets and industries amidst the rising concern over the global pandemic.
Although this year has been challenging for many businesses and business owners – there are only a select few who used this as an opportunity to restrategize and adjust their business to fit the fast-changing world of business and buying market.
Additionally, there are still thousands of businesses trying to overcome the lasting effects left behind by strict lockdown regulations, while trying to rebuild and restrategize in an already fragile economy. The economic outlook has seemed somewhat grim over the last year – there have been many business leaders and executives who we think will be quickly changing the world of business in 2021.
Considering how these business executives are distributed among various industries and upcoming markets – it’s clear that Artificial Intelligence and software programming and engineering is still one of the fastest-growing, and most lucrative industries actively shaping the future.
Elon Musk – CEO and CTO of SpaceX and TESLA
Musk is probably the most named business owner of 2020 as he has been actively working on various projects, from space travel, electric vehicles to his latest project Neuralink.
Although his new business venture, Neuralink will perhaps see the first-ever AI and computerized microchip implanted in humans, it hasn’t stopped Musk from completely leading the world of technology and space travel execution.
Musk has his interests in a lot of places and major companies scattered all across the world – and it’s no surprise that he has become a household name in 2020.
Andrea Loubier – CEO and Co-founder of Mailbird
Now you might not have heard much of Andrea Loubier before, but 2020 has seen millions of employees forced to work from the confines of their homes. Mailbird has made it easier, safer, and more trustworthy for remote working teams to manage and control multiple email accounts at once.
Not only is Mailbird focused on making the management of email accounts easier, but it has also seen the integration of various digital apps and software programs such as Slack, Asana, Whatsapp, WeChat, Dropbox, Twitter, Facebook, and many others. Loubier will make more headlines in 2021, as digital offices and remote teams will become a frequent appearance.
Daniel Garside – Managing Director of Fuel Fixer
One name which we will hear more of in the coming year is the managing director of Fuel Fixer, Daniel Garside. The team at Fuel Fixer has been helping both corporate and private clients with misfuel services in the UK. Fuel Fixer is also one of the largest and still independently owned misfuel companies in the UK, making it the most professional and well-established company of its kind.
Garside and his team have become a leader in its trade while being able to offer nation-wide coverage, best customer service, easy, efficient, and affordable services. Garside has been quoted in the past, stating, “Fuel Fixer isn’t simply willing to help any of our clients, but we have the most experienced people that can help anyone.”
Antonio Neri – CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise
HP has been around for years and can be found in nearly every home and office around the world. Neri has quickly caught our attention, as the CEO is shaping and changing the entire direction of the company. Neri has mentioned that he aims to sell the company’s whole portfolio as an attainable service as early as 2022.
Neri has built years of experience and knowledge from customer services and hardware-based sales tactics. Additionally, Neri is trying to shift how future computer hardware will be produced, and help the company shift towards becoming more cloud-based, fitting for the rapid development of software and tech engineering.
There is of course Bill Gates who is at the intersection of two of the biggest trends humanity has to face: he contributes to research related to the pandemic and frequently appears in news interviews, but will also be a major benefactor of the 4th industrial revolution led by AI, since Microsoft is in the cloud and AI business. Balancing these two interests will take considerable courage and leadership in 2021.
There are many great business leaders and executives one may consider to be unsung heroes. Yet the above mentioned have truly inspired and captured attention as leaders and disruptors. From hardware, mechanics to artificial intelligence, 2021 will see a surge of new leaders changing the basic rules of several industries.
