MOVER: Mark Leslie
AGE: 54
JOB: Chairman of Veritas Software

FAMILY
:
Wife, two children and a dog

EDUCATION
:
New York University, B.A., 1966; Harvard, M.B.A., 1980


DISTINCTION
: Under his leadership, Veritas Software increased net annual sales 82 percent.

Q
: You've said that you strive for a work environment in which people share a vision and participate in the creation of it. How do you do it?

A
: The most important thing that I do in my job is to create an environment where my staff and subsequently the people beyond that, communicate extensively, extremely aggressively. In this company we communicate about things that our attorneys tell us not to. We're aggressive in terms of our communications. We have an environment where we believe that if you trust people, they become trustworthy. We delegate decision-making. We get people to participate in the decisions that affect them, whether they are business elements or personal elements. And we really created an environment where people have a sense of accomplishment in their work and a sense of being tied to the outcome.
