This is a partial list of notable Jewish American business executives who are Jewish whether by religion, ethnicity, or self-identification. All entries should be accompanied by a reliable source identifying the individual as Jewish. For more on why reliable sources may consider a person Jewish, please see Who is a Jew? — ideally, the best source of this information is a self-identification by the person themselves, however, sources may identify the person as Jewish by virtue of one or more parents being Jewish or by conversion to Judaism. For other Jewish Americans, see Lists of Jewish Americans.
