The CEO of the Year is the highlight of the Top 50 CEO awards gala: the winner has no idea who they are until their name is called during the program.
The award goes to the Top 50 CEO award winner who receives the highest overall scores across all judging categories:
- Corporate governance
- Organization growth
- Industry leadership
- Personal social responsibility
In addition to the big reveal at the awards show, the CEO of the Year award winner is profiled in the July issue of Atlantic Business Magazine.
