H-E-B’s Chairman and CEO Charles Butt was ranked second out of 100 for Glassdoor’s Top CEO list for 2019. In an anonymous employee feedback ranking, Charles Butt received an astounding 99 percent approval rating!
Charles Butt took on competing retailers such as Costco, whose CEO, Craig Jelinek, placed at 42 with a 95 percent approval rating, and Trader Joe’s, whose CEO, Dan Bane, placed at 93, with a 91 percent approval rating. His appointment to the number two spot is an improvement on last year's list, where he was ranked number seven.
Presumably, due to his success leading H-E-B to world-class store status, it's no wonder Charles Butt has high approval rating with one of the most successful private label programs in the U.S. and state-of-the-art digital products and services. Charles Butt, who succeeded his father as company President, has helped build H-E-B into a retail powerhouse, operating more than 400 stores with annual sales over $26 billion, according to a press release
