CEO of the Year
Obermatt uncovers the best of the best CEOs objectively without personal judgments.
Unlike other rankings, Obermatt measures CEOs purely on numbers – and that compared with a company’s unique set of competitors and peers. There are neither judges nor subjective judgments. And, as an independent Swiss financial research firm, Obermatt remains strictly neutral.
Browsing through the list of winners, one can find well-known names as well as new or undiscovered talents. Each CEO’s ranking is based on growth, operating performance, investment performance, and a combined ranking.
Interpreting the ranks is easy. The higher the CEO rank, the better the performance.
