Alibaba’s leaders experience the biggest fall on this year’s list, with the duo rated as having declining influence by both the Power 50 and overall industry. The global e-commerce giant continues to dominate headlines both good (record revenue) and bad (counterfeit goods backlash) as company founder Ma and CEO Zhang expand their empire into everything from health care to movies. Alibaba.com, which most directly impacts the promotional products industry, grew 15% in the most recent quarter.
