ABSTRACT
This article provides information about top 10 companies and their chiefs. some of them are, Sir Terry Leahy, Chief Executive of Tesco PLC. He is with the company since 1979 and ably steering the corporate trolley since March 1997, 47-year-old Leahy has made Tesco's position as the nation's favourite grocer unassailable and now has his sights set on the world stage. Another is Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of Glaxosmithkline PLC. Dr Garnier seems to have emerged miraculously unscathed from the drubbing shareholders gave him over pay in May. It helps that the company has had a good year elsewhere, with post-merger hiccups finally ironed out and signs of rising productivity.
