Sexiest CEOs alive

There are some CEOs that can make running a company look ridiculously easy.

Then there are some who can do it with, well, a certain je ne sais quoi.

Business Insider has scoured the world to find the sexiest Chief Executives on the planet.

Sexiness is a subjective measure — and it’s not just about

looks. It’s also about success, power, ambition, charisma, altruism,

fashion sense, and style.

For this ranking, Business Insider have also only included CEOs of

companies with at least 100 employees.
