Barbara Byrd-Bennett

CEO, Chicago Public Schools

Age: 64

Last year, Byrd-Bennett managed a task more daunting than subduing a teachers’ strike or shuttering schools: grappling with a $900 million shortfall. She made ends meet using a one-time accounting adjustment, while crossing her fingers that pension reform will help with the long-term cure.
