January 31, 2012 in Board Diversity
By Paul Hodgson – CCO and Senior Research Associate
Businessinsurance.org has recently released a list of the 10 Most Successful African American CEOs of all Time. The list includes names such as Kenneth Chenault, CEO of American Express, Aliko Dangote, CEO of Nigerian conglomerate Dangote Group, Oprah (no explanation needed), and Sean “Puff Daddy” “Puffy” “P. Diddy” “Diddy” Combs, CEO of Bad Boy Entertainment among other companies.
The list does NOT include Stanley O’Neal, former CEO of Merrill Lynch, or Richard Parsons, former CEO of Time Warner, or Franklin Raines, former CEO of Fannie Mae… for fairly obvious reasons.
