With company cultures that celebrate — and even encourage — employees bringing their dogs to work, it’s no wonder that many of tech’s biggest players are also parents to the cutest creatures known to man.
From Google to Salesforce, dogs have taken over the hearts and Instagrams of the industry’s most powerful leaders. Sure these people are setting the agenda for global business and politics, but even billionaires need a little TLC (tender loving cuddles).
And did we mention these dogs are darn cute? Here’s a round up of some of the tech industry’s most powerful dogs.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan adopted Beast in 2010. Their daughter Max, who was born in 2015, has grown quite attached to the pup.
Kira Wampler, the CEO of Art.com and former CMO of Lyft, keeps her followers up-to-date on her dog's hilarious sleeping positions. You can't say Wampler doesn't know art when she sees it.
Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff celebrates Koa's birthday every year with a Twitter tribute, and this year the love dog turned 17. Salesforce launched in 1999, just one year before Koa was born. He became an office staple soon after.
Power sisters Susan and Anne Wojcicki have both been linked to pups in the past. Susan, who's rumoured to be in the running to replace Travis Kalanick as CEO of Uber, posted this picture of her smiley dog back in 2016. Her sister Anne, CEO of 23 and Me owns two
labradoodles, named Fluffy Bunny and Luna.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai shared his new dog with the world in March. It seems this #Doogler has a few things to learn before it can get down to business.
Jeffree's first day as a #noogler #doogler. Will get him started on coding once we get through potty training :) #NationalPuppyDay pic.twitter.com/ltVC8Us2lD
