Investor's Business Daily named Google's new CEO and co-founder, Larry Page as the CEO of the Year.
That is right, the late Steve Jobs was outranked by Larry Page in this report. Yes, Steve Jobs turned around Apple years ago to make one of the most successful companies today.
Larry Page, however, took a successful company that he co-founded, regained his right as CEO and then made drastic changes over the year. The success of Google did not slow a beat over his time as CEO at Google.
He reorganized the company's management structure, redesigned the face of the company's products and pushed forward with a multibillion dollar deal to acquire a cellphone manufacturing outfit.
He also launched two other products aiming at Groupon, the leader of online coupons, and Facebook, the top social networking site.
Google (GOOG) in the past two quarters blew away analyst views while boosting revenue by 32% and 33%, respectively.
