Gallo and CFO Adalberto Pereira dos Santos also are named as the best
in their sectors, as is the company's IR team. 
Kroton Educacional, a major Brazilian operator of private schools and
universities, ranks third on the Most Honored list, followed by
Cosan, a Brazilian ethanol producer, and Cemex, the Mexican cement
Brazilian companies lead the ranking with 65 companies on the Most
Honored table, followed by Mexico with 17 companies. Other Most
