COVID shakes up D-FW Fortune 500 list

DALLAS — After a drop from Irving’s Exxon Mobil, Dallas-Fort Worth has a new leader in this year’s Fortune 500 rankings.

Healthcare giant McKesson has emerged as the region’s biggest company at No. 7 after it reported over $230 billion in revenue and saw profit grow 2,547% in 2020.

On the flipside to McKesson Corp.’s (NYSE: MCK) growth, the region’s former leading company, Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), saw a more than 31.5% drop in revenue and ended 2020 in the red by north of $22 billion.
