CHICAGO, Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, today announced its 2013 CEO of the Year award nominees at its Management Behind the Moat Conference in Chicago. Morningstar annually recognizes a chief executive who exhibits exemplary corporate stewardship, demonstrates independent thinking, creates lasting value for shareholders, and has put his or her stamp on an industry.

The three nominees for this year's award are:

  • Darren Gee, Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. 
  • Hunter Harrison, Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd.
  • John Martin, Gilead Sciences Inc.

"Each year, we identify chief executives who have worked to contribute to their company's economic moat and invest in areas of the business likely to produce the greatest return over time for shareholders. We also look closely at capital allocation decisions and results that make a chief executive worthy of recognition for this particular calendar year," Heather Brilliant, head of equity and credit research for Morningstar, said. "This year's nominees represent the energy, industrials, and healthcare sectors. In addition to being veterans of their industries, they have executed strategies to drive profitability, increase their firms' competitive advantages, and generate long-term value."

Morningstar will announce its 2013 CEO of the Year award winner in January 2014. For Morningstar's article about the nominees, visit http://www.morningstar.com/goto/ceoynominees2013. For the complete list of past winners, visit http://corporate.morningstar.com/CEOhalloffame.
