The Top 3 Worst CEOs In History: See Who Made The ListA lot of people can climb the corporate ladder; but not all of them can stay at the top.

Recently GoBankingRates put together a list of twenty-eight CEOs who either saved or sank major companies. And while there are lots of stories to tell, there are three that almost killed some of the world’s biggest companies by damaging their brand.

For example. Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf. During his thirty four years at the company, bank employees began opening credit card accounts for customers who hadn’t asked for them. Then, those customers were charged late payment and overdraft fees for accounts they never knew existed.

When the scandal came to light, at least five thousand employees were involved. Stumpf resigned and the company is still trying to win back customer support.
