NEW YORK, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global market research firm ORC International has partnered with NYSE Euronext to conduct its eighth annual CEO survey. The results, released yesterday in the 2012 NYSE Euronext CEO Report, provide leadership insight on the most critical areas affecting business- the U.S. and global economy, job creation and prospects for business growth.
This year's survey gathers insight from 340 global public company CEOs from 26 countries representing more than $1.4 trillion in market capitalization. Additionally, 285 U.S small-business owners- defined as companies with less than 100 employees- were also surveyed. Results revealed that given the current global environment, a large majority of public company CEOs and small-business owners are looking to 2013 and beyond for improvements in the economy, business and job creation.
