The latest HBR list on best performing CEOs has been released. Unlike several other similar rankings, this business research is more comprehensive as it also looks into the ESG category which includes-Environmental, Social and Governance- and not just financials. Jeff Bezos of Amazon would have topped had it only been for financials as was till 2014, but with ESG accounting for a fifth of the categorization, the topper for the first time was Pablo Isla, the CEO of Inditex which is the mother company behind several retail brands such as Zara, Massimo Dutti, Oysho and Bershka. Inditex’s global expansion has been phenomenal, leading to an average of a store a day being opened on way to becoming the leading brand from Spain. The list shows great consistency with the two of the top three remaining the same, and sixteen being retained among the top quartile. Seventy-two among the hundred are repeats, while twenty-three are appearing for a fourth successive year. Of this list, thirty-two are engineering grads while twenty-nine possess an MBA degree. The average age to be a CEO it seems is forty-four, while a fifth of the total number are leading companies from outside their countries of birth.
