The chairman and CEO of Chinese internet behemoth Tencent has proven he’s far from a one-trick pony.

For the fourth consecutive year, Pony Ma has made it onto the Harvard Business Review’s annual list of the world’s best-performing CEOs.

Ma ranked 63rd overall this year and second in terms of financial performance.

Jensen Huang, CEO of U.S. tech company Nvidia, claimed the top spot on the overall list, up from second place last year.

Robin Li, CEO of Baidu, and Jack Ma, who stepped down as Alibaba CEO earlier this year, did not make the cut this year.

The list considers both financial performance and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices when evaluating each CEO. ESG scores account for 20% of each CEO’s final ranking.
