Really a great read from Forbes on maintaining a good CEO Brand.
We’ve all heard of certain companies: GE, Virgin, Berkshire Hathaway, FUBU. And I bet you know all their most famous CEOs’ names, too. Jack Welch, Richard Branson, Warren Buffet, Daymond John: You know those names thanks to CEO branding.
