Timeless wonders: With their skills very much intact these white-haired prodigies have no need to call it quits.

Aging Despots: Reluctant to leave the spotlight they are past their prime and should turn the reigns over to a new generation.

Comeback Kids: Whether to return their enterprises to their former glory or simply save themselves from boredom these once-departed leaders have returned with a vengeance.

Graceful Exiters: Quitting while ahead they leave a sterling reputation as they move on.
