Twitter Elevates Parag Agrawal to Succeed Dorsey as CEO

Twitter Inc.’s new Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal is now the youngest CEO in the S&P 500, but apparently just barely.

Agrawal, who was appointed Monday to succeed Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey, is 37, the same age as Meta Platform Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Citing security concerns, Twitter wouldn’t disclose Agrawal’s date of birth, but confirmed he was born later in 1984 than Zuckerberg’s May 14 birthday. Dorsey, at 45, was already among the dozen youngest CEOs in the collection of the largest U.S. companies.
