These were the 15 best CEOs of 2019




Employees love tech CEOs.

Comparably released its annual ranking of the best CEOs of major US companies. The career site used data from 10 million user ratings submitted over the course of a year. Users anonymously rated their CEO using a numerical score.

Tech CEOs, like Satya Nadella of Microsoft and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn, came out on top. Nine of the top 15 CEOs lead companies on the West Coast.

White men made up the overwhelming majority of the top

The sole woman was Lynn Jurich, CEO of the solar electricity provider Sunrun, who took the 10th spot. Two Asian-American men – Nadella and Sundar Pichai of Google – made the top 15, and no black or Latino men appeared at all.
