Chief Executives’ Club ranked no. 2 in world


Boston College’s Chief Executives’ Club of Boston was ranked the number two CEO speakers event in the world by the global public relations firm Weber Shandwick, based on its annual “Five-Star Conference” study.

In association with the Carroll School of Management, the Chief Executives’ Club of Boston holds invitation-only luncheons throughout the year that feature prominent chief executives as keynote speakers. Recent speakers include Steven A. Ballmer (Microsoft), Robert Greifeld (NASDAQ), Jeffrey B. Kindler (Pfizer), David J. O’Reilly (Chevron), James Skinner (McDonald’s), and Steve Forbes (Forbes), pictured above. The Club is a forum for discussing challenges facing business leaders today, and counts chairmen, CEOs, presidents, and managing partners among its members.

Weber Shandwick’s “Five-Star Conference” study examines the speaking engagements of CEOs and C-level executives from the world’s 50 most admired companies at top-tier, or Five-Star, conferences. The high-ranking events this year are (in rank order): the Clinton Global Initiative, the Chief Executives’ Club of Boston, the Wall Street Journal CEO Council, the World Economic Forum of Davos, Switzerland, and Fortune Brainstorm: TECH.

"It's a tremendous honor for both the Chief Executives’ Club of Boston and for the Carroll School of Management at Boston College,” said Peter Rollins, founder and president of the Club. “We are humbled by the recognition that our program continues to receive and thank our members, hosts, speakers, and staff for making this possible."
