Trends by Function: CEOs and Presidents

Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key trends for CEOs and presidents in 2022.
