Dimon Returns as CEO of the Year

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - JPMorgan Chase chief executive Jamie Dimon tops Institutional Investor's third annual All-America Executive Team for second year in a row.

For a second consecutive year, James (Jamie) Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co. is hailed as the best chief executive officer in the U.S., according to participants in the 2012 All-America Executive Team survey, Institutional Investor's third annual ranking of the nation's best CEOs, CFOs, investor-relations professionals and IR companies.

National Oilwell Varco's Clay Williams captures CFO of the Year honors, while John Sweeney of Sirona Dental Systems is the IR Professional of the Year, survey respondents say. II asked buy- and sell-side analysts to identify the best executives among the U.S. companies they cover, and to rate those companies on a range of qualities, including access to senior management and corporate social responsibility. Survey results reflect the opinions of nearly 1,350 analysts and investment professionals at more than 600 buy-side firms, and some 830 sell-side analysts from about 150 institutions.

JPMorgan Chase is the top vote-getter among companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange -- for a second straight year -- while Intel Corp. is the most highly lauded among Nasdaq-listed companies. Google also repeats as the Best Company at Corporate Social Responsibility. The winners will be honored at a special awards dinner to be held March 1 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York.

Other members of the All-America Executive Team, including Caterpillar CEO Douglas Oberhelman, Enterprise Products Partners CEO Michael Creel, United Technologies CFO Gregory Hayes, H.J. Heinz CFO Arthur Winkleblack, Procter & Gamble CFO Jon Moeller, and Coca-Cola CFO Gary Fayard, will be profiled in the December/January issue of Institutional Investor.
