About the selection process, The SaaS Report shared: "CEOs were selected based on the detailed reviews we received from their respective employees and industry colleagues. We received nearly 5,000 nominations on behalf of hundreds of CEOs. In many cases, it was evident that a CEO had developed such unique leadership skills that they were held in high esteem by seemingly everyone they worked with and were markedly more effective than their fellow CEOs in the industry."
