'Most Reputable CEO' Of 2018, Sundar Pichai Isn't Even In The Top 10 Anymore. Why?

Last year, Forbes released a list of the top 10 most reputable Chief Executive Officers in the world. At the time, Google CEO Sundar Pichai was actually in the number 1 spot.

Now, just about 12 months later, Pichai isn’t even in the top 10 anymore.

The list is currently topped by the likes of Royal Dutch Shell’s Ben van Beurden, Lego’s Niels Christiansen, Dell’s Michael Dell, and others. Pichai meanwhile has dropped way down to the 88th spot.

Despite a polarising internal memo that surfaced in 2017, with one employee decrying Google’s diversity initiatives, the CEO emerged unscathed. However, 2018 saw other problems for the company like mass employee protests regarding its apathy when dealing with sexual harassment cases, and a major data leak that saw them shutter Google Plus.

Pichai isn’t the only tech CEO that hasn’t made it to the list of reputable company heads. In fact, the only two that have made it are Michael Dell of Dell Technologies, and Nintendo’s Shuntaro Furukawa.

No surprises that likes of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey aren’t on the list.
