Cafaro has led Ventas for almost 20 years. She joined the company in
1999 and has expanded the healthcare real estate investment trust’s
(REIT) market capitalization to approximately $26 billion at its peak
from $200 million at the beginning of her tenure, and delivered a
compound annual total shareholder return (TSR) of 22 percent since 2000.
“A CEO’s success is dependent on the strength of her colleagues, and
this recognition is a testament to Ventas’s collaborative culture and
our team’s dedication to excellence and integrity,” said Cafaro. “We are
immensely proud of the superior results we have delivered over decades,
our commitment to our partners and our significant ESG efforts, all of
which position Ventas for sustainable success well into the future.”
The 2018 HBR ranking measured 881 CEOs from 870 companies across 29
countries. Taking a long view of business performance, the methodology
is primarily based on the financial returns for the CEO’s entire tenure
which makes up 80 percent of the final ranking. To calculate the final
position, the additional 20 percent of a CEO’s ranking factors in a
company’s rating on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
