Celebrating Business Leadership
Top CEOs in the GCC
Who is ranked
Only the firms listed on the stock exchanges of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman are eligible for the ranking. The leaders or the CEOs of the listed firms on the GCC bourses are ranked based on their company’s performance during the past fiscal year. All companies are evaluated.
Market reports are sourced from the GCC stock exchanges and parameters include revenues, earnings per share, profits, growth and corporate governance (transparency, timely submission of financial reports to the regulators and communication with shareholders). The ranking is finalized on the basis of hard statistics and numbers readily available to any researcher. This method makes the TRENDS and INSEAD’s Top CEO list the most transparent and unbiased in the region.
