When I started writing this blog in August, I learned from a NY Times article that there was only one CEO of the Fortune 500 companies who was writing one. Boy, things have changed since then.
Here are just a few major company CEO blogs:
Jonathan Schwartz, CEO and President of Sun Microsystems -- http://blogs.sun.com/jonathan/
Bill Marriott, Chairman and CEO of Marriott International -- http://www.blogs.marriott.com/
Rick Wagoner, CEO, and assorted executives, General Motors -- http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/
Bob Parson, CEO and Founder of goDaddy -- http://www.bobparsons.com/
David Neeleman, CEO of Jet Blue -- http://www.jetblue.com/about/ourcompany/flightlog/index.html
Of course, someone has created a wiki with a full worldwide list. Other than Nick's blog from Windber Medical Center, listed to the right, I have not seen many from the health care provider or insurance companies.
And, in case any of us need help, Debbie is available to give CEOs advice on how to write blogs!
And, a fellow named Seth, who suggested in 2004 that the last thing we need is more CEO blogs, unless they are based on candor, urgency, timeliness, pithiness and controversy. Golly, I need to work on that controversy part!
