A few "other" respondents so far - but no comments - my mistake for not including the "king of cloud market share" Andy Jassy at AWS... upvote if he's your favorite.

Thanks Bruce! We of course can't forget the more historical leaders/founders like Ross. Maybe we should do another poll for the history buffs...
