BT-Carma CEO watch

India's and the world's most talked-about CEOs in December.

     Print Edition: February 7, 2010

Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, not surprisingly, was the most written-about CEO in December 2009. Less predictably, though, of the articles tracked, none was critical and at least six per cent mentioned him in favourable light. Ambani was also in the limelight for being ranked the 5th best CEO in the world by Harvard Business Review.
