Edi­tor’s NOTE

Industry Leaders - - Front Page - by Anna Do­man­ska

This is a chal­leng­ing time to a busi­ness leader. Around the globe, the eco­nomic roller coaster is far from over. The po­lit­i­cal uncer­tainty has taken a toll on long-term busi­ness planning. Back in the United States, share­holder ac­tivists have be­come pow­er­ful crit­ics of busi­ness lead­ers. It’s a tough time to be a C.E.O in par­tic­u­lar, which ex­plains the 2015 turnover among global C.E.O.S, which reached a record high of nearly 17 per­cent.

Against this back­drop, it’s heart­en­ing to see a group of high-per­form­ing C.E.O.S. This year, we have ‘Most Un­sung Iconic C.E.O.S of All Times,’ a great illustration of the many ‘un­sung’ busi­ness lead­ers who have suc­cess­fully steered the com­pany through ad­verse times. Th­ese best-in-class C.E.O.S have two traits in com­mon: an abil­ity to em­brace risks and a bias to­wards cap­i­tal­iz­ing on op­por­tu­ni­ties. Th­ese char­ac­ter­is­tics of busi­ness lead­ers ben­e­fit al­most ev­ery busi­ness, as they are clear mark­ers for the abil­ity to be open-minded and con­nect thought­fully across a va­ri­ety of chan­nels to take ad­van­tage of mar­ket dis­rup­tion. The list of­fers a stark re­minder that a spectacular per­for­mance doesn’t go un­no­ticed. Plunge In!
