THE WEEK - Shar Dubey was CEO of Match Group. She stepped down in May but continues to be director and adviser. Raised in Jamshedpur, she was the only woman to be accepted at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). She then pursued a master's degree at Ohio State University and she became the first woman engineer and the first foreigner to be hired by a Pennsylvanian aerospace manufacturer. When Mandy Ginsberg called her in 2006 looking for someone to manage Chemistry, she had never laid a finger on a dating website. And yet she decided to apply. Mandy and Shar formed a duo that would last for ~15 years. Dubey strongly contributed to the transformation of Tinder into a cash machine.
