Sundar Pichai Not Among 10 Most Reputable CEOs Anymore
Not only Sundar Pichai has dropped from the top list, but also the CEO of LinkedIn, Michael Weiner doesn’t find any place among the top 10 reputable CEOs. Forbes reported that the reason behind Pichai drop is Google has been accused of the sexual misconduct and some other data breaches.
