Top 100 Richest CEOs

Elon Musk, Tadashi Yanai, Charles Koch, Jim Walton, and the late Steve Jobs – what do you think do these people have in common? They are successful – yes! They are rich – definitely yes! But one thing that some people may not be aware of is that, these famous businessmen are actually some of the world’s wealthiest CEOs! To stay on top of their game, every company must have the type of leaders who are always driven by their goals, dreams, compassion, and hunger for success. Many have vision but they lack the compassion and knowledge on how the business really works. Some have the knowledge but they are not confident enough to pursue and achieve their vision. A successful CEO is a combination of all. Aside from having good leadership and communication skills, many CEOs are known to have strategic focus, agile, and performance-oriented. Only the bests can make it to the top and be able to stay on the top. With the advent of modern technology, success has been more difficult to achieve as each company must cope up with massive transformations through time. They also have to deal with equally successful competitors who are also motivated by the same goals as the others – to create a remarkable name in the raging global arena. Thus, the roles of Chief Executive Officers in every company should never be discounted. CEOs are entrusted with the responsibility to lead the entire organization. They are the ones giving the directives to get the goals done including, but not limited to, achieving continues growth and development, expanding resources, foreseeing and managing risks, and sustaining financial stability. So who are our frontrunners in the field of business leaders? We have listed the names of charismatic and visionary CEOs worldwide that were able to heap a fortune from managing, controlling, and directing companies.
