Microsoft's Satya Nadella and Mastercard's Ajay Banga are among four leading India-born CEOs who have sealed a place in Fortune's Businessperson of the Year list topped by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg

Nadella has been ranked fifth among 50 global corporate heads by Fortune Magazine in its annual 'Businessperson of the Year' compilation, followed by CEO of Milwaukee-based maker of water heaters A O Smith Ajita Rajendra on the 34th spot in the list. 

Zuckerberg took home the annual honour of Businessperson of the Year, with Fortune saying his success rests on three pillars of "his unique ability to look into the future, his otherworldly consistency, and the business discipline he has nurtured in an industry quite often enamored with bright, shiny objects". 

Fortune said since Nadella took charge in early 2014, Microsoft has been engineering a "stunning" turnaround. 

"He has taken a company focused on personal computing but showing promise in its enterprise and cloud-computing businesses, and turned that equation on its head," it said.
