CEOWorld magazine announced its list of the Best CEOs in the United States on Friday, and a pair of New Jersey executives earned places in the Top 100.

New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson’s Alex Gorsky ranked No. 21, while Newark-based Prudential Financial’s John Strangfeld ranked No. 76 on the list from the New York-based publication.

Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, was the top-ranked CEO, followed by Satya Nadella of Microsoft and John Legere of T-Mobile.

Gorsky and Strangfeld were recently ranked highly in Glassdoor’s ranking of the Top CEOs for 2018.

The CEOWorld rankings are based on input from company employees, with CEOs of companies with at least 1,000 workers being eligible. Nearly 100,000 people participated in the invitation-only study.
