NEW YORK, June 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The world’s top business leaders on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, as well digital channels like blogs, podcasts, and video, were announced today in the 2020 CSuite Digital Leadership Awards, the first global awards for business influencers.

Recognizing business leaders who use their voices to inspire and influence, the awards highlight the growing importance of CEO and corporate activism in a business climate where staying on the sidelines is no longer an option.
