Facebook’s Zuckerberg Ranked Top CEO

mark zuckerberg facebook 630 300x200 Facebooks Zuckerberg Ranked Top CEO[1]Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB[2]) Mark Zuckerberg has topped an annual list of the highest-rated CEOs[3] by Glassdoor, a business networking website.

The social media giant founder, who dropped out of Harvard to become a billionaire and one of the biggest names in the tech world, received a 99% approval rating from Glassdoor members for his leadership at Facebook, which underwent a tumultuous IPO last year, PC Magazine noted.

Glassdoor surveys its membership each year to compile its list of the best CEOs. Last year’s top spot was occupied by Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL[4]) Tim Cook. Perhaps not surprisingly, considering Apple’s nose-diving share price, Cook tumbled the eighteenth place in this year’s survey, though he still received a 93% favorable rating.

Other CEOs on the list included QualComm’s (NASDAQ:QCOM[5]) Paul E. Jacobs, Google‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG[6]) Larry Page, Amazon‘s (NASDAQ:AMZN[7]) Jeff Bezos and Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX[8]) Howard Schultz.

In December, Zuckerberg donated $500 million worth of Facebook shares to the Silicon Valley Foundation[9], a charity promoting education and improved health care around the world.

Shares of Facebook slipped more than 1% in Friday morning trading.
