The Lovefest For Ex-Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert Continues

Former Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert has been getting a lot of love lately.

Last week, Glassdoor released its 2019 ranking of the top 100 CEOs in the U.S. based on anonymous employee reviews, and Engelbert was ranked 15th—the highest among the Big 4 CEOs and the second highest among women chief executives. This week, career monitoring website Comparably ranked its top 50 CEOs for women in 2019, based on anonymous ratings from female employees, and Engelbert was ranked ninth in the large companies category—the only Big 4 CEO who was mentioned and the second-highest woman CEO on the list.

In addition, Engelbert was No. 27 out of 50 in Comparably’s ranking of the top-rated CEOs for diversity among large companies.

Not bad for a person who no longer is a CEO and who no longer works in the Big 4.

In both rankings, employee reviews and ratings were analyzed between May/June 2018 and May/June of this year, so Engelbert was still queen of Green Dot Nation in the U.S. at that time and still talking to large crowds about her teenage son’s fear of robots.

But after Engelbert, the first woman Big 4 CEO in the U.S., was not elected to a second four-year term in Deloitte’s big chair, she found another big chair to sit in. The WNBA announced on May 15 that Engelbert will be the league’s first-ever commissioner. She officially takes over on July 17.
