50. Kevin Akeroyd, Cision

The CEO of the only publicly traded PR company in the world has grown the business through acquisitions and consolidation.

There are thousands of PR tech companies in the market, but, as the only publicly traded offering, Cision tells a compelling story.

Critics charge Cision with consolidating the industry for consolidation’s sake. CEO Kevin Akeroyd believes innovation will only be driven through scale. His goal is to build an all-in-one cloud platform for every PR need.

It hasn’t cornered the market yet, but Cision's myriad acquisitions have given it a leg up on the competition.
