This year The CEO Magazine is preparing to celebrate business excellence in North America.

In October this year, The CEO Magazine is setting the stage for an exceptional celebration right in the heart of New York City.

Beyond acknowledging a company’s triumphs, the 2024 Executive of the Year Awards puts the spotlight on the remarkable individuals leading those companies – the CEOs who steer their organizations toward unparalleled excellence.

Modern businesses are looking to enhance their purpose by gaining a greater understanding of the impact they have on their communities and the world at large. Getting this right will help to attract socially conscious consumers, retain talent, improve brand reputation and contribute positively to society, therefore laying the foundations for long-term success.

With 10 distinguished sector awards to choose from, executives have the opportunity to showcase their best achievements and become the Overall CEO of the Year winner.

Through the Executive of the Year Awards, The CEO Magazine shines a light on the leaders steering their companies toward this elevated purpose, and recognizes and rewards these everyday superheroes.

With 10 distinguished sector awards to choose from, executives have the opportunity to showcase their best achievements and become the Overall CEO of the Year winner.
