From tech CEOs to religious figures
Fortune’s third annual World’s Greatest Leaders list published March 24. Topping the list? Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
He’s got every reason to cha-cha. More has gone right for Bezos lately than perhaps at any other time during his two-decade run in the public eye. His company is expanding internationally and spreading its hydra-headed product and service offerings in unexpected new directions. Bezos, too, is evolving. Always a fierce competitor and stern taskmaster, he has begun to show another side. With the Post, he’s taken a seat at the civic-leadership table. And with his various projects Bezos is also becoming known as a visionary on topics beyond dreaming up new ways to gut the profit margins of Amazon’s many foes.
The top five leaders:
- Jeff Bezos
- Angela Merkel
- Aung San Suu Kyi
- Pope Francis
- Tim Cook
