MarketWatch asks for ‘CEO of the year’ nominations

Who would you nominate for CEO of the Year?

Now is your chance to let MarketWatch know who you think should be considered for their Readers’ Choice 2006 CEO of the Year Award.

Last year, Herbalife Ltd.’s Michael Johnson leapfrogged several of the best-known U.S. chief executives to win the MarketWatch Readers’ Choice CEO of the Year award, topping such notables as Apple Computer Inc.’s Steven Jobs.

Nominate a CEO in 3 easy steps here.

You know what to do.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader “JadisOne” for the heads up.]


  1. I am the senior design manager at MarketWatch and a Mac evangelist. You do not know how gratifying it was to see MDN promote my work! I would like to say to vote from your heart, not just to skew the results.

    And while officially I can not support the actions of MDN I had a feeling this would happen. With that said, I hope the best CEO wins! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Woo hoo! Nice to see when something you refer makes it up on the site.

    But anyway, go Steve Jobs. He has my vote. Owning his company’s stock has netted me some nice discretionary income. I just wish it kicked out some dividends. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  3. I nominate Steve “MonkeyBoy” Ballmer. He is doing more to help the Mac resurrence than anyone I can think of who doesn’t work for Apple. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

    Ooh, I see a chair hurled my way, Duck!

  4. Microsoft stock pays dividends. Ask for dividends from companies that don’t invest your stock money heavily into research and development of new technologies.

    By not paying you a kickback, Apple has grown at an unprecedented pace and is poised to storm past rivals at a speed that will blind people.

    Be glad Apple does not pay dividends.

  5. I Nominate Steven R. Ballmer for his incredible creativity and steadfastness under undeserved and relentless attacts by those who can’t appreciate a great operating system when they see one. What a wonderful man and creative genius. Ballmer, Ballmer, Ballmer, Ballmer, Ballmer!!
