Three North Texas companies made the top 50 on Fortune’s annual World’s Most Admired Companies list, which was topped by Irving-based ExxonMobil.
To compile the list, Fortune looked at more than 1,500 candidates, consisting of the 1,000 largest U.S. companies by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies on the Fortune Global 500 database with $10 billion or more in revenue.
From there, the list was winnowed to 680 companies boasting the highest revenue across 52 industries.
Fortune partnered with search firm Korn Ferry to further narrow down the most-admired businesses. Korn Ferry polled executives, directors and analysts on companies in their industries on nine different criteria, from investment value to social responsibility.
