2014 CEO of the Year (Polls open 1/2015)


Not sure why a lot of people vote for “CEO of the Year” before the year ends.

Microsoft took a $900 million charge for the Surface RT due to wrong price!  Surface saved Microsoft under Steve Ballmer leadership; however, not sure if Steve is the biggest winner or loser CEO almost year! Email JD Morris for his top 10 Steve Ballmer BOMBS!

Jorma Ollila was CEO of the Year in 2000 for Nokia by Morning Star!  Even my VC friends changed the name of their VC fund from Nokia Ventures.

Blue Run Ventures

Our polls for CEO of the Year open after our 1st radio show with Investor Network Nights.

Until then, look at Morning Stars CEOs of the Year and read their book (or laugh)!
