Weber Shandwick based its rankings on speaking engagements involving the “50 Most Powerful Women in Business” as determined by Fortune Magazine. In recent months, the Chief Executives’ Club of Boston has hosted PepsiCo CEO Indra K. Nooyi and DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman among its keynote speakers.

The Chief Executives’ Club of Boston is tied with the Detroit Economic Club at the top of the Weber Shandwick ratings.

“We are humbled by the recognition that our program continues to receive,” said Peter Rollins, president of the Chief Executives’ Club of Boston. “We thank our members, hosts, speakers and staff for making this possible.”

The Chief Executives’ Club of Boston holds regular luncheons that provide a forum for the discussion of challenges facing business leaders today. Principal speakers from the ranks of the world’s most prominent chief executives offer views on a wide variety of subjects - from the banking and financial industries to consumer products and the implications of the information age. The group’s corporate membership is made up of chairmen, CEOs, presidents and managing partners of area firms.

In addition to the Weber Shandwick honor as the leading venue for women business leaders, the Chief Executives’ Club of Boston has also been designated the nation’s No. 1 CEO speaking forum by Best Practices in Corporate Communications (BPCC) group of Washington, D.C. and the No. 2 CEO speakers club in the world in a 2010 analysis released by Weber Shandwick.

The Chief Executives’ Club of Boston operates in association with Boston College’s Carroll School of Management.
