Jobs: CEO of the year
Steve Jobs has been voted "because he excelled at running two companies [Apple and Pixar]: "To be sure, there were other chief executives whose companies produced more-stellar financial results last year than Apple and Pixar, which, if combined, would still rank 15th on The Chronicle 200 list. Intel's Craig Barrett, for example, oversaw a company that again led The Chronicle 200 with $176.4 billion in market cap, a hefty 65 percent gain from the previous year. Carly Fiorina helped Hewlett-Packard boost revenue by 18.4 percent to capture the No. 2 spot with $74.7 billion in sales."
