Overview

Nearly 1,900 money managers and research analysts from over 700 firms cast their ballots to determine the 2019 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, 125 firms scored highly enough to receive the designation of Most Honored Company.

Eight 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), Experian (Business & Employment Services), Siemens (Capital Goods), Nestlé (Food Producers), LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (Luxury Goods), Tesco (Retailing/Food), Deutsche Telekom (Telecommunications Services), and British American Tobacco (Tobacco).

When the field is narrowed to small- and mid-cap companies, only one firm wins in every category: GVC Holdings (Leisure & Hotels).
