Enel was among the European companies that most impressed investors during this challenging year, according to magazine Institutional Investor’s 2020 “All-Europe Executive Team” ranking. The magazine’s sixteenth annual survey asked investors and analysts to rate the region’s top executives and Investor Relations programs. Enel ranked first in terms of CEO, Investor Relations Programme, Investor Relations Officer, Investor Day as well as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Practice. In terms of CFO, Enel ranked first for sell-side analysts and second for buy-side analysts.
“We are honored to be recognized by analysts and investors for our relentless work on the construction and communication of a business model that integrates business and sustainability, two concepts that must go hand-in-hand in the vision and strategy of every modern company,” said Enel CEO and General Manager Francesco Starace. “We must acknowledge that this achievement comes easily with such a team composed of brilliant, talented and dedicated individuals, who maintained their strong commitment to our Group despite these challenging times.
