SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Vanity Fair named Tesla Motors Inc. CEO Elon Musk the No. 1 “disrupter” on its New Establishment list, on its 20th year. “Musk’s ability to combine staggering ambition with a do-gooder sense of purpose has made him revered among his peers,” the magazine writes. Vanity Fair also made note of Tesla’s decision in June to share all patents. No. 2 on the magazine’s list are Google Inc. co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and Apple Inc.’s CEO Tim Cook and Jonathan Ive. Vanity Fair’s list is broken into “The Powers That Be,” which media mogul and News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch topped this year, and “The Disrupters”.
