We Asked 100 CEOs to Describe Themselves and Here’s What They Said
A lot of CEOs get a bad rep for earning hideous figures of salary. The average CEO earns more in an hour than the average employee earns in a month. Nonetheless, CEOs have the potential and power to shape the culture, society. Many CEOs are included in the reputable list Fortune’s The World’s Most Powerful People.
