Did you know that the average height for a Fortune 500 CEO is 6 feet tall?
That’s 3 inches taller than the Average American man. What’s more interesting to note is that 30% of these CEOs are 6 feet 2 inches tall or more! Now compare that with the fact that only 3.9% of the overall United States population is also of this height. Some more interesting height stats? Surveys have also shown that less than 3% of CEOs were below 5’7″ in height and that 90% of CEOs are above average height.
