LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Microsoft, Ford and Red Bull are three of the 100 stand-out performers of 2012, according to the World Finance readership and editorial panel.
The World Finance 100, announced today, celebrates the most innovative, progressive and strategically-sound individuals and organisations of the year.
With entrants spanning the globe, the list provides an exhaustive collection of those reshaping the landscape of business over the course of yet another difficult year.
Joining Microsoft, Ford and Red Bull on the list are pioneers in technological development, such as Korea's Samsung and Hungary's NNG, as well as those making great strides in customer relations, such as Australia's Commonwealth Bank and Alkhabeer Capital.
On announcing the list, editor Alexander Redcliffe paid testament to the entrants for showing strength and flexibility during a period of numerous economic challenges. He said:
"This year has not been an easy ride for industry, with a number of unfavourable and unpredictable circumstances bringing many national economies to their knees. While many hands have been forced to change business structures and strategic endeavours, the World Finance 100 represents those who have set out to rethink the way business is conducted."
In its fourth year, the World Finance 100 is assembled by a body of internal panelists following recommendations made by the magazine's readership.
