New York: Four persons of India-origin, including Chennai-born CFO of General Motors Dhivya Suryadevara, have been named by Fortune among 40 of the most influential and inspiring young people in business under the age of 40.

Instagram Cofounder and CEO Kevin Systrom and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, both 34, are tied for first place on the Fortune '40 Under 40' list.

Chief Finance Officer of the US' largest automaker, General Motors Dhivya Suryadevara comes in at the 4th spot, followed by Vimeo CEO Anjali Sud (14), Cofounder and Co-CEO of Robinhood Baiju Bhatt (24) and Female Founders Fund founding partner Anu Duggal (32).

For the first time ever, Fortune also assembled a “supplementary honour roll” of the most impressive, young superstars who are transforming business at the leading edge of finance and technology.

The ‘Ledger 40 Under 40' supplementary honour roll list shines a light on the pioneers building some of the world's fastest-growing businesses.

This list includes Senior Vice President of Product at real-time currency exchange and remittance network Ripple, 39-year old Asheesh Birla, digital currency wallet and platform Coinbase's Chief technology officer Balaji Srinivasan, Director of MIT Digital Currency Initiative Neha Narula and Coinbase's Vice President of operations Tina Bhatnagar.

Fortune said, Suryadevara, 39 made history when it was announced she would become GM's first female CFO later this year, making the auto giant one of only two Fortune 500 companies led by a female CEO and CFO (the other is chocolate giant Hershey).

Sud, 34 joined video-sharing website Vimeo as head of marketing in 2014 and was last year named CEO, charged with focusing Vimeo as a cloud-based platform for video creation, distribution, and monetization, targeting individuals and small- to medium-size businesses.

Bhatt, 33 cofounded financial services company Robinhood with Vlad Tenev in 2013 as an “egalitarian challenge to old guard brokerage houses. Five years later, it has shot to a valuation of $5.6 billion.”
