Gale Klappa, Wisconsin Energy chairman and CEO, has been named to Institutional Investor magazine’s All-America Executive Team for the fifth consecutive year.
Each year, the magazine conducts an extensive study of analysts and money managers from across the U.S. and abroad to determine the top-performing executives in virtually every industry sector – ranging from airlines to utilities.
In this year’s study, Klappa was ranked by buy-side analysts as one of the top three electric utility CEOs and the best CEO of a purely regulated utility.
More than 1,250 buy-side analysts and money managers at 660 firms and more than 1,000 analysts at brokerages and independent investment firms participated in the study.
Earlier this year, Klappa was named Wisconsin Business Leader of the Year by the Harvard Business School Club of Wisconsin. Under his leadership, We Energies also has been named the most reliable utility in America by PA Consulting.
In addition, Corporate Responsibility Magazine has named Wisconsin Energy to its “Best Corporate Citizens” list for the seventh year in a row. The honor distinguishes Wisconsin Energy as one of America’s most transparent and accountable companies.
