Fortune Magazine Editors Pick Their Executive Dream Teams

Business can be just as much fun as sports, we hear. Fortune magazine has a new editorial feature where the editors each select their dream team, fantasy football-style, of business executives, including the top CEO, CFO, CIO, CMO from corporations. Readers can also vote in a poll using a code from the magazine between these five major players:

  • J.P. Morgan’s Jamie Dimon
  • Apple’s Steve Jobs
  • McDonald’s Jim Skinner
  • IBM’s Sam Palmisano
  • PepsiCo’s Indra Nooyi

How to choose?! Our instinct is to go with Steve Jobs, just because his company is the coolest. But there’s a lot more to it than that.  Fortune editor-at-large Geoff Colvin introduces the feature in a column this week, called “What Makes a CEO an MVP?” He gives a little more background on their pros and cons. IBM’s Palmisano can “change strategies and business models” in a shifting market. J.P. Morgan’s Dimon can handle the government. And McDonald’s Skinner kept up profits in a recession. Decisions, decisions… Okay fine: Steve Jobs, but we’ll sub in Skinner if things get rough.
