CEOs are seeing brighter skies ahead in 2012, according to Vistage, a San Diego-based CEO membership organization. Vistage’s latest CEO Confidence Index results, reflecting the views of over 1,600 U.S. CEOs surveyed in December 2011, shows an upswing in confidence in a number of areas, from growth to new hires to profits. According to the Vistage news release, “After precipitous declines during the prior two quarters, CEO confidence bounced back at year’s end with the largest quarterly gain since the start of the recovery in 2009.” At the same time, a Tatum Survey of Business Conditions suggests “cautious optimism” on the part of CFOs. Happy New Year!
