30 IR stars in 30 days: GE
IR Magazine has a long history of honoring those men, women and companies around the world that excel at investor relations. In celebration of 30 years of IR Magazine, we selected 30 IR stars that have shone particularly brightly over the past three decades and will be posting one profile each day for 30 days, giving you the gift of an IR advent calendar.
General Electric is the most consistent performer in IR Magazine’s global rankings. In fact, in the 23 years that IR Magazine has produced a US investor perception study, GE has ranked either first or second in 14 of them. GE has won 34 IR Magazine Awards out of 47 nominations since 1999 and the company also consistently performs well at the Corporate Governance Awards. Matt Cribbins, who had been with the company for 20 years and served as IRO for four, recently left the firm, but all the indications are that the company will continue to maintain its excellent IR program, now under the leadership of Todd Ernst, GE’s vice president of IR.
Stay tuned for more IR stars this week and pick up a copy of the winter issue of IR Magazine to see the full list.
