Leading Community-Based Business Insights Platform Announces Launch of First Annual CEO Rankings

Owler, the leading community-based business insights platform, announced the launch of its inaugural Top-Rated CEO Rankings, which provides a true market view of CEO ratings based on over a quarter million inputs from members of the Owler Community. The ratings break down the most-liked CEOs across the country by industry and city, as well as compares CEOs at public and private organizations.

According to the report, Craig Jelinek, CEO of Costco, is the highest-rated public company CEO, with a rating of 94.9. Marriott’s Arne Sorenson is close behind with a rating of 93.9 and Capital One’s Richard D. Fairbank rounded out the top three public company CEOs.

People living in Nashville have the best chance of working for a beloved CEO, according to Owler. Of the 30 cities with the most businesses listed on Owler, Nashville has the highest average CEO rating with a score of 82.4. And contrary to popular belief, good and bad CEOs are not evenly distributed across industries. Owler found that Marketing and Creative, Travel and Hospitality, and Automotive industries have higher rated CEOs than any other industries. Unsurprisingly, the airline industry has the lowest ranking CEOs.

“Owler’s first annual list of top-rated CEOs is the only official ranking that provides a true market view of America’s best-loved leaders,” said Jim Fowler, Founder & CEO, Owler. “These executives received high approval ratings from employees, suppliers, partners, and even competitors, to beat out 99.4 percent of other CEOs featured on our platform. They truly are the best of the best in the global marketplace.”

Owler’s 2017 Top-Rated CEO Rankings report includes all CEOs with 10 or more ratings spanning across 50 cities and 25 industries. Employees, followers, competitors, and other general users of Owler were asked to rate CEOs. Owler analyzed approval ratings of the top 5,000 most-rated chief executives included their top-rated CEO rankings.
