Top Private CEOs

2013

Gerald Storch

Mr. Storch is ExecRank's Top Private Company CEO for 2013. Under his leadership, Toys“R”Us has strengthened its international position as the leading authority on toy and baby products. His work in introducing the Toys”R”Us Express store concept has allowed the company to capitalize on previously inaccessible markets. He is highly regarded amongst other Chief Executive Officers and we are happy to include him at the top of our list for 2013.

Gerald L. Storch joined Toys“R”Us, Inc. in February 2006 as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. In this capacity, he is responsible for leveraging the strength of the Toys“R”Us brand and positioning the global franchise for growth over the long term.

Mr. Storch has successfully led efforts to integrate the company’s toy and baby businesses, an initiative that has included the creation, development and execution of the Side-by-Side store concept, which combines Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us under one roof. He has also overseen the continued growth of the Toysrus.com e-commerce business and, in 2009, added to the company’s portfolio of online brands with the acquisitions of eToys.com, KB Toys, and Toys.com. That same year, he led the company in obtaining the exclusive right to own and operate the legendary FAO Schwarz brand and its website, FAO.com.
