#11 Ralph Izzo Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated, Chairman and CEO
As chair of the Board of Governors at Rutgers, he helped oversee the UMDNJ merger last summer. And last fall, he was named chairman of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce — all while running PSEG. "Is he that visible? No," said one insider. "But he's so successful and so important. The company is going great — you never hear about problems — and it's making the capital improvements the state needs."
