A great deal of movement since the last top ten back in July, with only long-term number 1 Simon Segars, and LSE chief Xavier Rolet maintaining their positions.

Three new entries – Sebastian James (who now has the biggest Twitter following of any FTSE100 CEO) from Dixons Carphone comes in at number 5 with the electronics retailing group having joined the constituents, and former Government COO Stephen Kelly sharing that position on his appointment to lead software producer Sage. The final new entry is Asian banking group Standard Chartered’s Peter Sands, one of only three LinkedIn Influencers.

The ranking is produced by measuring networking, rather than just PR use of LinkedIn and Twitter by the CEOs. Points are scored for their activity on both of those social networks with a bias towards activity and connecting with others (rather than just being followed). You can find information about how to obtain the full data set for the past six reports here.

And if you’re wondering why we do this – well, you can find out more about the report, stamp London and what we are all about here.
