The World's Most Powerful People
When Forbes Magazine released its 2015 list of "The World's Most Powerful People," it was a reminder of the Council's access to global influence. The Council's 2014 Mallon Award recipient Rex Tillerson, the CEO and President of ExxonMobil, is listed again in 2015 -- he's been on the "Most Powerful" list, ranked from the 40s into the 20s, since it was established in 2009. The Council's November 16 speaker, former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, has been listed multiple times, also, ranking at a high of #6 in 2011.
