Want your company to outperform? Get the right CEO—and don’t let go.
When John Chambers announced he would step down from this post as Cisco’s CEO earlier this week, he was one of the longest-serving execs in the country. His 20-year tenure is made all the more remarkable by the average for the rest of the Fortune 500 chiefs: a measly 6.9 years. But even Chambers’ run can’t compete with some of the other Fortune 500 veterans. Nine executives in the 500 have held the top spot for more than 30 years, and two for more than 50.
Here, with the help of FactSet Research,we compiled a list of the longest-serving CEOs in the Fortune 500 and calculated their average annual returns. It turns out that, at least in these cases, wisdom really does come with experience: During their tenures, the stocks of all but five of the 7 companies outpaced the S&P.

出生于俄亥俄州的维克尼是俄罗斯移民的后代，他带领L Brands公司（和他自己）以令人瞠目的速度登上了商界巅峰。现年77岁的维克尼目前依旧经营着这家价值110亿美元的跨国零售帝国，旗下的品牌包括内衣品牌“维多利亚的秘密”和护肤品牌Bath & Body Works。他经营公司的时间长度，相当于1937年出生的人的平均寿命。
Leslie Wexner, L Brands
The Ohio-born son of Russian immigrants, Wexner propelled L Brands (and himself) into the upper echelons of the business world at remarkable speed. Today the 77-year-old runs an $11 billion multinational retail empire that includes Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works. He’s also been doing it for almost as long the average man born in 1937 could expect to live.
