Chief Executive is a business magazine published by Chief Executive Group, LLC.

Description[edit]

Chief Executive began publication in 1976. The magazine is published six times a year and has a circulation of 42,000 copies. It is audited twice yearly by BPA Worldwide. The magazine began publishing its magazine online in 1998.

Some of the magazine's featured sections include: CEO Chronicles, Thought Leader, Chief Concern, Labour Relations, Strategy, Financial Management, Roundtable, and the CEO Confidence Index, which reflects the CEO population's perspective on the economy, employment and investment opportunities via a monthly survey.

Each May, the magazine publishes its "Best and Worst States for Business" rankings, based on survey results from its CEO readership base. CEOs grade the states on taxes and regulation, the quality of the work force and living environment, among other categories.[2] The 2011 rankings elicited a friendly political feud between Florida Governor Rick Scott and Texas Governor Rick Perry, whose states ranked 3 and 1, respectively.[3]

Chief Executive features a ‘CEO of the Year’ award. Past recipients include: Jack Welch, Bill Gates, Andrew Grove, Lawrence Bossidy, Herb Kelleher, Michael Dell, Fred Smith, A. G. Lafley, Bob Ulrich,[4] Anne Mulcahy,[5] Jim Skinner, Hugh Grant,[6] and Alan Mulally.[7]
