Compiled for Fortune's online home,, the feature quotes Chenault's admiration for Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett.

"He embodies this incredible blend of high intellect and business judgment with the ability to emotionally engage with people," says Chenault in the article.

And the company he admires most? Apple.

"I admire... what Steve Jobs has been able to do by driving innovation in a hypercompetitive industry. At Apple retail stores, he's created an experience. I went in around the Christmas holidays. I got a laptop for my son. It was a really terrific experience. It was just fascinating to feel the energy in that place. The personnel could not have been nicer and more attentive."
