- Tony Hsieh, Zappos
After selling his company LinkExchange to Microsoft in 2009, Tony Hsieh realized that happiness meant more than having money. He has made it his mission since becoming the chief executive of online retailer Zappos to do everything in his power to ensure employee and customer happiness. He even wrote a book on the subject. Today, Zappos is famous for its great employee culture and its equally great customer service. He formed a company called Delivering Happiness, based on the book’s title, to help people find their own passion and turn it into profit.
