10 Best Tech CEOs Of All Time
Bangalore: CEOs are the driving forces behind a company’s function. Few of them take this responsibility in such a way that they transform companies that even though started in garages with no capital into one of the world’s most valuable companies. In tech world you can find many such examples, Steve Jobs at Apple, and Larry Page at Google. However, there are a few little known others too, who share the same or a more brilliant story.
To rank the best CEOs of all time, Harvard Business Review has come up with a scorecard that takes into account their financial and corporate social performance. Here is the list of top 10 of them as compiled by Rediff.
#10 Ming-Kai Tsai
Tenure: 1997 – Present
Taiwan fondly calls him ‘King of the Bandit Phones,’ for it is because of him many companies can offer cheaper Smartphones.
He leads Mediatek, a semiconductor design company specializing in chips for TVs, DVDs and wireless communications after it parted from its parent company, United Microelectronics, which was one of Taiwan’s biggest chip companies.
Tsai is the first one to tap the opportunities by offering better services, cheaper product, for example, when the big chip companies were focussing on 3G chips, MediaTek focussed on improving the existing 2G chips to lower the cost and offered better services with it. And again, while other chip makers were focussing on developed markets, he did his gig at emerging markets like China, which has turned out to be the biggest smartphone market in the world today.
