Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff Marc Benioff: Flowers ... and handcuffs Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff is a charmer, which is also a nice way of saying he's a smarmy manipulator. Blowing off call after call with a Time contributor, he might send flowers and leave a long voicemail explaining himself. But when the Wall Street Journal wanted to write a story about Benioff's Hawaiian vacation home, the Salesforce.com CEO went off the handle, writing the wife of Dow Jones's CEO a letter, flying to New York to berate a Journal editor, and then, finally ordering ordering construction workers and local police to detain a Journal reporter checking out the property.
