Richard Fain Named Again to Barron’s Best Chief Executive List

Miami, Fl.  June 19, 2019 -- Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (NYSE:FCL), has been recognized on Barron’s 2019 list of World’s Best CEOs. 

Fain is listed among 30 global business leaders honored by Barron’s this year.  This is Fain’s second appearance on the top executives list, having also been named in 2018.   Barron’s editors selected the honorees after reviewing the S&P 500 index as well of a roster of large, non-U.S. companies for “standout results in recent years on growth in revenue, earnings, and shareholder returns.”   The financial and investment publication noted this year’s honorees had great success despite having to grapple with “awkward surprises,” including tariffs, e-commerce disruption, changing interest rates and more.
