New Fortune 500 CEOs: Change Means Opportunity

December 12, 2013

CEO Changes = New Sales Opportunities

The new year always brings a change of leadership at a handful of Fortune 500 companies and 2014 will be no different.


New leaders often bring a new strategic focus, new priorities and a new way of doing business. Smart sales pros equate change as opportunity, particularly in companies where it has been difficult to get a foot in the door. Insight on these new corporate leaders can help you craft a new strategy for cracking the account.

Among the newly-minted CEOs taking the reins in 2014 will be Mary Barra, replacing Dan Akerson as CEO of General Motors. We have updated Barra's profile to reflect her new role and focus, and have completed in-depth profiles of 11 other incoming Fortune 500 CEOs, covering personal and professional details, as well as philosophies, strategies and challenges.

They include:

Douglas Peterson - McGraw-Hill

W. Rodney McMullen - Kroger
