business news in context, analysis with attitude

Fortune has a piece pulling together various surveys and studies that point to how respected Amazon and its CEO, Jeff Bezos, are in the business community.

According to the story, "Bezos was the runaway winner in a survey Fortune conducted among Fortune 500 CEOs about which leader they admire most." No other CEO got nearly as many mentions, the story says, though it is worth noting that they were not allowed to vote for themselves.

In addition, "Earlier this year, Fortune also put Bezos in the No. 1 spot on its World’s Greatest Leaders list ... But it’s not just other C-level executives and media types who admire Bezos and his firm: Amazon also ranked in the top five for 'most influential' among Fortune 100 companies in a survey of over 10,000 U.S. adults conducted by SurveyMonkey. It also placed No. 1 in the 'most trustworthy' and 'company you’d most like to invest in' categories."

I know this will make some folks crazy. I feel bad about that ... but it is the reality of the world in which we live, and the ecosystem that Amazon and Bezos have built with enormous efficacy.
