CEORater 2019 Technology CEOs of the Year

There were too many quality CEOs to choose from when we went about selecting the “CEORater Technology CEO of the Year” for 2019. Rather than selecting a single “Technology CEO of the Year”, we elected to select five top CEOs across five Technology categories: 1.) “PropTech”, 2.) “FinTech: Payments”, 3.) “Platform Companies”, 4.) “FinTech: Capital Markets/ Asset Mgt.”, 5.) “Information Services”.

We contemplated a variety of variables including quantitative metrics such as: Total Stock Return, Return on Invested Capital, EBITDA growth and Operating Cash Flow growth. In addition, we considered qualitative elements such as: demonstrated ability to effectively execute accretive acquisitions, demonstrated ability to leverage a decentralized operating model, demonstrated ability to meet or beat short-term investor expectations while investing for the long-term and enhancing competitive positioning/ extending the competitive moat. Our winners:

  1. PropTech: Andrew Florance, CoStar Group (ticker: CSGP)
  2. FinTech, Payments: Ajay Banga, Mastercard (ticker: MA)
  3. Platform Companies: Satya Nadella, Microsoft (ticker: MSFT)
