Business Power Meets Social Good
Efrat Peled, Chairman and CEO of Arison Investments, was ranked number 50 on Fortune Magazine’s 2012 international list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business.
At the mere age of 38, Peled is no doubt among the younger of the crowd of influential women in the world - a feat accomplished for the second year in a row: Peled, the only Israeli on the list, was ranked number 44 in 2011.
Peled spearheads Arison Investments - an international investment company - and she is responsible for the management of businesswoman and philanthropist Shari Arison's entire business, spanning billions of dollars. Under her helm, Arison Investments employs 24,000 employees, and runs business in five continents and 38 countries.
Not only is Peled a shrewd businesswoman, she is also a powerhouse of doing good, bringing zeal and passion to generating social good as an integral part of business. Having been named Chairman and CEO in her mid 30’s, Peled brings a fresh angle to social and economical leadership, which incorporates doing good as part of business strategy. The young businesswoman is a member of the World Economic Forum’s Forum of Young Global Leaders as well as CGI Lead - a select team of accomplished leaders who work with President Clinton to find innovative solutions to global challenges.
