the #socialCEO top ten trumps – 1 Simon Segars

01 Simon SegarsAnd so we get to the top spot of the top ten #socialCEOs (based our October 2013 report data). At number 1 is the (new) head of the chip maker ARM, Simon Segars.

Unlike his peer at number 2, Segars uses social networks to converse rather than to broadcast. Over 500 connections on LinkedIn, and a good follower/following balance on Twitter.

As probably the most important FTSE100 company in Silicon Valley, it’s probably not that surprising that Segars has such a mature social network presence – his predecessor, however, was a closed book in comparison.

ARM also have corporate Twitter and LinkedIn presence.

So that’s the top 10 for 2013. The next #socialCEO survey will be taking place in January, with the report available soon after. Alongside the results, the updated top ten, and analysis, we also have thoughts from some industry leaders outside of the FTSE100 who do use social networks, talking about how some of their disconnected peers might take advantage. You can sign up to get the report when it’s released here.

Catch up on the rest of the top ten.
