It hasn’t even been a year since he was elected as the new Nintendo president and representative director, but Shuntaro Furukawa has been ranked among the top ten most reputable chief executives in the world.
That’s according to the Reputation Institute’s CEO RepTrak 2019, who, earlier this year, measured the reputation of more than 140 global CEOs through canvassing more than 230,000 individual ratings among the informed public.
The top 10 global CEOs recognized in Reputation Institute’s 2019 CEO RepTrak study (in alphabetical order) are:
Ben van Beurden, Shell
Niels B. Christiansen, LEGO Group
Michael Dell, Dell
Emmanuel Faber, Danone S.A.
Fabrizio Freda, The Estée Lauder Companies
Shuntaro Furukawa, Nintendo Co., Ltd.
Ralph Hamers, ING Group
David Holl, Mary Kay Inc.
Christopher J. Nassetta, Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc.
Carsten Spohr, Deutsche Lufthansa AG
This has allowed Nintendo to continue to remain in the top 10, after the recognition that Tatsumi Kimishima received in last year’s report for the success that Nintendo Switch was met with.
