I 100 più creativi dell’anno.

2014_06_12 immagine 12C’è anche una ‘nail artist’ – artista delle unghie – Fleury Rose, al nr. 36 (ehi, ragazze che passate un’ora al giorno a smaltarvi le unghie, avete una chance di diventare famose, se non avete altre ‘core competencies’) tra le 100 persone più creative nel business del 2014 inserite nella annuale classifica di Fast Company (a sua volta la rivista dell’anno, sia in formato digitale che su carta, secondo la American Society of Magazine Editors). Al primo posto, ‘Miss Creativity 2014’, svetta la principessa saudita Reema Bint Bandar Al Saud, a capo dei marchi del lusso Alfa International, Al Hama e Yibree, mentre ‘Mister Creativity’ sono all’ex equo Gur Kimchi e Daniel Buchmueller, i team leaders del progetto Prime Air di Amazon, la consegna dei prodotti Amazon via … drone (!). PS – Non ci sono italiani tra i primi 100, ma tant’è, sappiamo chi guida lo sviluppo tecnologico nel mondo …

Ecco la classifica dei primi 10, completa di motivazioni:

  1. 2014_06_12 immagine 02Princess Reema Bint Bandar Al-Saud, CEO, Alfa Intl. For inviting Saudi women into the workforce. “You cannot have half of your population not working,” says Princess Reema Bint Bandar Al-Saud, CEO of Saudi Arabian luxury retailer Alfa Intl., who is bringing meaningful change to one of the world’s least-progressive cultures. “The second a woman is responsible for her own finances, she’ll want to explore more of the world for herself and become less dependent.” More []
  2. 2014_06_12 immagine 03Gur Kimchi and Daniel Buchmueller, VP of Prime Air; software development engineer of Prime Air, Amazon. For proving that the sky is not the limit. The first item that shipped via Prime Air, ­Amazon’s drone delivery system, was a Kindle.
    Team leaders Gur Kimchi and Daniel Buchmueller chose it for its compact size, but the symbolism in this test flight was clear: If the Kindle revolutionized Amazon’s business by enabling the company to deliver goods digitally, Prime Air could bring that same level of instant gratification to the physical world.

  3. 2014_06_12 immagine 04Jill Wilfert, Vice president for global licensing and entertainment, Lego. For making toy bricks a big-screen hit. Lego tinkered with movie ideas for years, but the pieces took a long time to lock together. Persistence paid off: The Lego Movie, released in February, earned more than $400 million and rapturous reviews. More []
  4. 2014_06_12 immagine 05Mario Queiroz, VP of product management, Google. For rattling the $200 billion smart-TV industry with a $35 solution. Cord cutting has sparked a revolution in the living room, and Mario Queiroz is Google’s conquering hero. It took merely 18 months for him and his team to bring Chromecast from idea to market. More []
  5. 2014_06_12 immagine 06Raj Talluri, SVP of product management, Qualcomm. For teaching your devices to talk to each other. Imagine opening your front door and having the lights blink on, the TV start up, and the thermostat kick on. It’s a wild idea, but one that may be imminent, says Ray Talluri. More []
  6. 2014_06_12 immagine 07Design team, Dropbox. Soleio Cuervo, Tim Van Damme, and Gentry Underwood. For having an invisible touch. “People often ask, ‘What do you do at  Dropbox ? Everything looks white,’ ” says designer Tim Van Damme. “The answer is, we have some of the most talented designers in the industry to keep everything as simple as possible.”  More []
  7. 2014_06_12 immagine 08Anthony Foxx, U.S. Secretary of Transportation. For (finally!) modernizing how we get from here to there. Anthony Foxx ­persuaded the FAA to ditch electronic-device restrictions and ushered through DOT approval of collision-preventing vehicle-to-vehicle communication. He streamlined the environmental-impact review process to reduce approval time on infrastructure projects. More []
  8. 2014_06_12 immagine 09Anna Kendrick, Actress. For knowing that her best role is herself. “Oh, I love this guy,” Anna Kendrick says, as a bichon frise greets her hand with its tongue. “Hi, pal! You’re a good guy!” The 28-year-old actress is sitting on a bench in a Hollywood Hills dog park, where a half-dozen or so of California’s chicest hounds are frolicking in a grassy meadow, enjoying a lazy morning on the last day before spring.

  9. 2014_06_12 immagine 10Sallie Krawcheck, Owner, 85 Broads. For expanding female executives’ opportunities. Sallie Krawcheck, former CEO of Merill Linch and Smith Barney, calls herself a “recovering research analyst.” The latest step in her recovery: purchasing the women’s networking club 85 Broads and helping the organization’s 35,000 women thrive in their own careers. More []
  10. 2014_06_12 immagine 11Michael Heyward, Founder, CEO, Whisper. For sharing people’s secrets. Like Snapchat and bitcoin, Whisper is designed to keep digital footprints to a minimum. App users type out a short, often confessional message, overlay it on a related image, and share it anony­mously (there are no user profiles or friends to follow) with the Whisper community. More []
