The Gala CEO of the Year Event

Stanley Bergman, 2017 CEO of the Year, and his wife Marion, enjoy the festivities at the New York Stock Exchange Gala in his honor.

The CEO of the Year Gala is a unique event in American business. Peer CEOs gather to celebrate the accomplishments of the winner, as well as to rededicate themselves to their highest ideals as servant leaders who daily balance the needs of consumers, employees and investors. When done right, great CEOs deliver tremendous benefits to all three constituencies.

Recognition by peers of the highest caliber is an unrivaled honor in any endeavor: in the competitive set of U.S. business leaders, the competition is exceptional. Indeed, the list of 31 prior winners is the most elite collection of business leaders anywhere.

CEOs of the Year typically receive multiple honors over their careers; their businesses are often the cornerstones of their communities. But winners agree that this honor is different and, in many ways, more meaningful than other recognition they receive. The fact that the award is bestowed by peers adds special meaning.
