Top of the heap

If you are at the top of the heap, you are in a higher position than everyone else, usually in terms of wealth, power or ability.

Examples:

Minchee is now the CEO at an accountancy firm. I always knew she would get to the top of the heap.

When it comes to photographers, Barbara is at the top of the heap. She's won so many awards.

If something or someone is on the scrap heap, it means it is no longer wanted or needed.

Example:
