Featuring the brightest and most innovative Chief Executive Officers today.

Our content team spent an entire month to create the list. We used a metric called True Reach, devised by Klear, to determine on average, how many people view a single post across all social media platforms. While that was our guiding metric, we also included overall influencer rating, total audience size, and engagement score, to paint a full picture of each of our influencers. We hope you find this document useful, and take heed to some of the messages that our influencers have taken to heart themselves.
