CEOWORLD magazine’s global ranking of the best chief executives for 2018 measured more than 1,800 CEOs across 96 countries. Taking a long view of business performance, the methodology is primarily based on the financial returns for the CEO’s entire tenure, which makes up 60 percent of the final ranking, as opposed to stock price and the current quarter’s numbers.

To calculate the final position, the additional 40 percent of a CEO’s ranking factors in a company’s track-record on environmental, governance, and social issues, as well as market shares, change of market capitalization, and brand’s newsworthiness and impact.

Note:
* Pfizer CEO Ian Read (ranked 38th) plans to step aside as chief executive after 8 years helming one of the world’s biggest drugmakers, handing over the reins to the chief operating officer Albert Bourla.
* Intel’s Brian Krzanich (ranked 43rd) resigned as CEO in June 2018; Robert (Bob) H. Swan was named interim chief executive officer of Intel Corporation.
* On 6 August, 2018, PepsiCo confirmed that Indra Nooyi (ranked  90th) would step down as the chief executive officer and Ramon Laguarta, would replace her on 3 October, 2018.
* Pedro Parente (ranked 228th) resigned as Petrobras (Petroleo Brasileiro SA) chief executive officer.
*  October 2018, General Electric (GE) replaced CEO John L. Flannery (ranked 366th) with Larry Culp (H. Lawrence Culp Jr).
