At the heart of every successful business is a CEO committed to driving it forward; a task that cannot be taken on lightly in today’s competitive economic climate. As a result, the demand for business leaders who are willing to take risks and demonstrate novel thinking is currently at an all-time high.
The Global CEO Excellence Awards 2020 will honour those who possess the ability to take a business to the next level thanks to their commitment to promoting business excellence, determination and innovative approaches.
To determine the results, the team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgement based on various criteria such as: business performance, longevity, business growth (either sustained or rapid), and any significant innovations or feedback from colleagues or stakeholders.
Should you wish to take part in the Global CEO Excellence Awards 2020 or know of a CEO deserving of a place on the shortlist this year, simply use our voting form to submit a nomination.

The CEO Monthly team work ardently to identify great business leaders, driving many of the nominations themselves. We also encourage external nominations via the subscribers of the magazine, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either CEOs of third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or the CEO of the business which they are a part of.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those formally accepting are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria such as: business performance whilst the CEO has been in the position, any dramatic or positive change within the business since the CEO took the helm, feedback from any stakeholders during this time and any new innovations within the timeframe.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to winners in the Global CEO Excellence Awards, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure for them personally and for their business. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to publicise your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to assist our clients with their needs.
Here you will find detail of our winners. All featured winners are included in our digital awards magazine which is published here on our website and distributed to the circulation of CEO Monthly comprising of a little over 60,000 business leaders.
