5 of the World’s Best CEOs

In a highly competitive and technology-driven global marketplace, Barron’s had little difficulty identifying CEOs who delivered value not only for shareholders, but for customers and employees. Indeed, this year’s list of 30 top CEOs[1] saw a substantial number of additions and deletions. Notably absent from this years list is Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL[2]) Steve Jobs, who passed away last year. Reed Hastings of Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX[3]) also slipped off the list after the DVD-rental and movie streaming firm made a series of highly publicized missteps that alienated customers and caused its shares to tumble last year.

Here are five of Barron’s top CEOs for 2012:
