Overview

More than 3,200 money managers and research analysts cast their ballots to determine the 2018 All-Europe Executive Team.

The fifteenth annual ranking of the continent's best CEOs, CFOs, and investor relations professionals recognizes the top Europe-based companies across thirty-one industries. This year, more than 100 firms scored highly enough to receive the designation of Most Honored Company.

Seven companies swept their sectors, earning first place in each of the four categories: CEO, CFO, IR professional, and IR company. These firms were Airbus (Aerospace & Defense), Lonza Group (Biotechnology), Nestlé (Food Producers), Allianz (Insurance), Subsea 7 (Oil Services), ASML Holding (Technology/Hardware), and Ryanair Holdings (Transport).

When the field is narrowed to small- and mid-cap companies, two firms win in every category: Marine Harvest (Food Producers) and Subsea 7 (Oil Services).
