Countdown: The five best CEOs working today

The CEO and the company are supposed to go hand-in-hand. Companies sometimes grow at tremendous rates while they have a CEO founder at the helm. Less frequently, they grow just as tremendously with a CEO savior at the helm. In all cases, though, it is always a CEO’s success with a company that causes the CEO and the company to fuse into one in the public’s mind. In these cases, the company seems to be a direct expression of the CEO’s will. For that reason, there is a very big overlap between companies that have great CEOs, and companies that are very closely associated with their CEOs, something you will certainly notice as you go through today’s list.
