Occupation: Founder and CEO, Cabrera Capital Markets

Singed by his part in the recent UNO charter school network scandal (his firm underwrote some of the bonds that fueled the group’s expansion, and he parachuted in as chairman), Cabrera held on to his public appointments, including a seat on the Public Building Commission, and remains one of the city’s most influential Hispanic businessmen.
