A Role Model CEO

I'm happy to see Meg Whitman, CEO of Ebay, on top of Fortune Magazine's list of Most Powerful Businesswomen. She would have been my choice for the last several years. In fact, I don't know why she is not tops on all the business lists not just the ones limited to women. Ebay's performance has been stellar since Whitman took the reigns growing it into a profitable powerhouse. Ebay's revenues have grown under her leadership from a modest $5.7 million to $3.2 billion in 2004. It's staggering and yet you rarely hear about Meg Whitman the way you hear about other brash, celebrity-style CEOs.

I've been keeping my eyes on Meg Whitman since she joined Ebay back in the late 1990s. She left a position as head of Hasbro's Playschool Division to join what at the time was called Auction Web and had just 19 employees. Believe it or not I was actually an Auction Web user and I can remember when they switched over to the funny colorful ebay logo. What I like so much about Meg Whitman is that she seems like a regular person, a mom and a wife who happens to also be one of the most outstanding business people of our times.

If ever there was a good role model for CEO success it would be Meg Whitman of Ebay. Meg, if you're out there, would you like a nice CEO of an HR software company to mentor? If so sign me up. And Congratulations for making it to the top of the list.
