The Dow Jones Industrial Average is comprised of some of Wall Street’s biggest names. The men and women at the helm of these 30 companies have a big responsibility, and in these tough economic times, being a big-name CEO is harder than ever. So who is leading their companies to success, and who is falling behind? Check out how the 30 Dow stocks have each performed under their current leadership and how the company has performed relative to its peers since its CEO first set up shop in the corner office. (Note: Stock performance reflects dividends)
