Celebrating Excellence with the Singleton Foundation CEO Prize
A lifetime achievement award for outstanding management
A resurgence of American entrepreneurship is critical to ensure economic prosperity. As part of our goal to encourage this renewal, we’ve created the CEO Prize for Excellence in Business Leadership, an annual award which honors a living CEO whose work demonstrates, over a long period of time, a combination of talent, vision, focus and commitment, thereby producing exceptional shareholder returns for decades. By recognizing business leaders we highlight the successes we try to inspire in our users.
