Interesting piece in the Harvard Business Review looking at the leading CEOs in the World. Clearly, some "eye of the beholder" type stuff, but an impressive list on any basis.
What stood out to me was the fact that 20% of the top 100 are running companies based outside their country of birth. That's quite a stat and reflects the fact that the leading corporations in the World search globally for the leading talent.
20 of the CEOs lead companies based outside their countries of birth On average, they became CEO at age 44 and have been in office 17 years 29 have an MBA 32 have an engineering degree Only 2 are women 81 are insiders
