Fortune wrote in its mini-profile of Zuckerberg:

“Everyone knows Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook when he was 19, but because of that extraordinary beginning, everyone tends to underrate the role he has gone on to play,” says Silicon Valley eminence Peter Thiel, who himself has had an outsize role in the tech revolution. “Keeping the company relentlessly focused on the long-term future, he is the opposite of a quarter-to-quarter Wall Street CEO, and that’s why he deserves to be recognized as a great leader.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Apple CEO Tim Cook finished atop Fortune’s list.
