Force of nature: How the unstoppable Marc Benioff fueled Salesforce’s stratospheric rise

A handful of Salesforce executives are also milling about; they’re here for a meeting with Benioff too. One of them, the company’s chief design officer, is joining via videoconference. His floating face appears on a monitor that’s been wheeled out for the meeting. Every once in a while, he pipes up: “Is Marc there?” It’s not clear where the CEO is, or what he’s doing.
