Who Is Your Favorite CEO?

The second you go to the business section of a newspaper you will see some negative press on a CEO leading some company. Whether it is Robert Nardelli from Home Depot getting a huge severance package or reading about the boys from Enron and their fines and sentencing.

Today let’s forget all the bad stuff about CEOs; please toss it out of your brain. I don’t want you to think about it and frankly I don’t want to write about it.

I remember growing up reading about CEO icons like Jack Welch and Lee Iacocca. They have retired and moved on to another phase of their lives.

  • My question is who are the great CEOs of fortune 500 companies today?
  • Who gets it?
  • Who would you be proud to work for?
  • Whose integrity is never compromised?

Is it Bill Marriott who has been CEO since 1972?

Is it Douglas R Conant who has been CEO of Campbell Soup for 4 years?

Is it newcomer Jim Donald who took the top spot at Starbucks less than two years ago?

The real question is who is it and why?

I look forward to reading all of your comments.
