San Francisco: Microsoft's India-born CEO Satya Nadella has grabbed the top spot in Fortune's "Businessperson of the Year 2019" list. Other Indian-origin CEOs in the Top 20 list are Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga (8th spot) and Santa Clara, California-based computer networking company Arista's head Jayshree Ullal (18th position).
Fortune's annual list features 20 business leaders "who tackled audacious goals, overcame impossible odds, found creative solutions". "In a year dominated by political chaos and bluster, it was a rare brand of steady — even quiet — leadership that won the day in the business world. And no one epitomises that brand of obsessively results-driven, team-based leadership more than our new No. 1 Businessperson of the Year," Fortune said.
