Last Year's Rank: 86

Boom led Amazon, already a market leader in CD and download sales, into the streaming business with Amazon Prime Music and reportedly is now ­exploring launching a standalone ­service. He won't cite specifics but says Prime usage has grown 50 percent year to year since Prime Music's June 2014 launch (aided by Amazon's new ­Siri-esque Echo speaker) and has strengthened Amazon Prime, which has "tens of millions of users."
