To rank highly in my listing of designers and designer teams, you should have produced more than one game ranked in the top-250, the higher the better, and the older the better. It is allowed to reimplement your own games into the taste of today. But I don't count those games twice, you may benefit from the old publishing year of the first release, as well as the high rank of the reimplementation release. The you may share the honour with a co-designer, but will not get the whole score in this case, unless you are part of a persistent designer team.
Much to my surprise, the 3:rd place holders are the design team of Dune and Cosmic Encounter! Bill Eberle, Jack Kittredge and Peter Olotka. I personally know nothing about these game or these designers, but the rest of the list is familiar to me. On 2:nd place we have Vlaada Chvátil. On 1:st spot we have Uwe Rosenberg.
After these three, Reiner Knizia, Christian T. Petersen and Richard Garfield follows, with games I am familiar with.
The list is dynamic, and I can recalculate it each day with different results depending on the rankings in bgg top-250. The grand movement is probably that Rainer Knizia is losing points to the runners-up.
Beware that no one-hit wonders appear in the list! This is why the designers of Eclipse and Acquire does not show up here.
The number after the designers name and the list of games is calculated by a formula derived from the overall bgg ranking system. I can of course give the details if anyone is interested. But it is scientifically sane and objective, nothing subjective from what I like personally.

The complete list in descending order:
