For starters, let's get to deeply understand the job role of a CEO. Being at the very top executive position in a company, a CEO has to perform a variety of tasks. These include managing resources, attending meetings and making important decisions regarding the company, and much more. Most of their meetings take place face-to-face as they prefer communicating this way over communicating via e-mails or other electronic means.
So being a CEO is not an easy task as a CEO has to communicate with a vast number of people belonging to various entities, such as of the government, stakeholders and the public in general. Whenever an issue arises in the company, the CEO has to face the public, especially if it's related to consumer or user security breach. The Information Technology revolution requires that CEOs be even more active than ever, due to cybersecurity issues and the rapid increase in cybercrimes.

The United States of America is known for its bustling and booming consumer culture and giant organisations such as Amazon, Microsoft and many more. So it comes as no surprise that of the world's top ten CEOs, six of them belong to only American companies. At the very top is Jensen Huang, of Nvidia, which is a computer game company. The second position is taken by Marc Benioff of Salesforce, which is an American cloud-based software company in California. At number three stands Francois-Henri Pinault, the CEO of Kering, a luxury consumer goods company in France.
While most of the presence on the list is that of America and mostly with an IT background, there are CEO names belonging to other countries and categories too, that should not be missed. Have a look below at the best performing CEOs in the world.
