CEO Confidential

Not even one woman CEO made it to the list of America’s most-loved CEOs of 2015

Surprisingly, not even one female CEO made it to the list of the top 50 highest-rated CEOs of 2015, even though many Fortune 500 companies are being led by women.

Last year, 2 women appeared among the top 50 highest-rated CEO for a large company in the U.S. in 2014.

Sharen Jester Turney, president and CEO of Victoria’s Secret, the largest American retailer of lingerie, ranked at number 35 with an 85% approval rating, the only other woman, Yahoo!’s Marissa Mayer, nearly dead last, with a 79% rating.

This year, however, women have completely disappeared; It is important to mention that among companies in the S&P 500 index, just 23, or 4.6%, have a woman in the top position.

Glassdoor’s website allows employees to anonymously post reviews and details of their salaries.

Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page is the highest-rated CEO of 2015, by a survey conducted by employment review site Glassdoor, up from his 2014 score of 93%.

Larry Page earned a 97% approval rating from Google employees, Google’s chief executive trumped 2014’s top boss, LinkedIn’s CEO, Jeff Weiner, who was last year’s no. 1.

While, last year’s favorite LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner dropped to 12 position with 93% approval.

Tying up for first place is Nike’s CEO Mark Parker, who also received a 97 percent approval rating.

He is followed by H-E-B’s CEO Charles Butt, with a rating of 96%, Facebook’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Ultimate Software’s CEO Scott Scherr rounded off the top five positions.

Unfortunately, despite a diversity of industries spanning retail, travel & leisure, and technology, none of America’s top 50 most-loved CEOs of 2015 were female.
