'Worst CEO' list calls out Zynga's Pincus, Zuckerberg's 'hoodie mentality'

Zach Miners | Jan. 10, 2013
Zynga's Mark Pincus made the annual "Worst CEOs" list compiled by Dartmouth College professor Sydney Finkelstein, which also nearly included Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Andrew Mason of Groupon.

And, like Zynga, Finkelstein said that Facebook has been a little too slow in getting into the mobile space.

However, Facebook's low revenue-per-user rate of about $1.25 (based on third-quarter sales) was not a factor in Zuckerberg being mentioned as part of the list, Finkelstein said.

Meanwhile, Groupon CEO Mason's dishonorable mention stemmed from a similar "frat boy" attitude as well as the firm's corporate strategy, Finkelstein said.

"There are many other companies doing the same thing," he said.

Brian Dunn of Best Buy topped the list, followed by Aubrey McClendon of Chesapeake Energy, Andrea Jung of Avon and Rodrigo Rato of Bankia was listed fifth behind Pincus.
