Just profit.

f12-01-15_coverpromohiresFortune has selected Nike CEO Mark Parker as its Businessperson of The Year. The annual rankings combine 10 different metrics to formulate a list of 50 top business leaders.

“Financial results, including 12-month and 36-month increases in profits and revenue, formed the backbone of our analysis,” explained Fortune editors. “We also weighed each company’s stock performance and total shareholder returns over the same periods and factored in each’s ratio of debt to capital. Nonfinancial elements, like business influence, leadership style, and strategic initiatives, played a part in our evaluation as well.”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was the runner-up for Businessperson of The Year. He was followed by Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga.
