Jeffrey Katzenberg

CEO
Dreamworks Animation SKG

Katzenberg runs DreamWorks, the largest animation studio in the world, which he co-founded with famed director Steven Spielberg and Hollywood megamogul David Geffen in October 1994. It has released a total of 18 animated feature films so far, including "Shrek," "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda." Prior to co-founding DreamWorks, Katzenberg served as chairman of Disney Studios. He also previously served as president of Paramount Studios, where he was involved in such now-classic films as "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Saturday Night Fever," and "Grease." In other words, he brought you all your favorite movies in high school, and now he's making them for your kids.
