Marc Benioff: Compound interest
The chairman and CEO of Salesforce.com lives in San Francisco's fancy Presidio Heights neighborhood, and he keeps some mighty company for dinner. President Barack Obama visited his home in April 2011 for a campaign fundraiser -- $35,800 a head.
When not breaking bread with the president, Benioff can pop over to his pad on the Big Island of Hawaii. Special construction on the estimated five-acre oceanside compound was completed about seven years ago. An element of secrecy surrounds the property to this day. According to local reports, the compound includes bungalow-like structures with thatched roofs and a lagoon pool -- a mini-village setting that amounts to more than 7,000 square feet of living space. As far as we can tell, this is not solely a vacation getaway, though. Benioff depends on working from his Hawaiian hideout on a regular basis. Aloha.
