Since 1986, Chief Executive of the Year winners have been a who’s who of American business leadership, including Ken Frazier, Brian Moynihan, Arne Sorenson, Stanley Bergman, Michael Dell, A. G. Lafley, Marillyn Hewson, Bill Gates, John Chambers, Bob Iger, Anne Mulcahy, Larry Bossidy, Andy Grove, Herb Kelleher, and many, many more. The honor recognizes courageous, long-term executive leadership for shareholders and society. It is considered one of the most distinct awards in business because of who chooses the honorees: not editors or analysts, but rather a selection committee comprised of peer CEOs.
