Are CEOs Optimistic about the Year Ahead?

This year’s GLG CEO Survey finds CEOs in transition as their companies emerged from the worst of the pandemic. Overall, the executives we surveyed seem optimistic, expressing confidence that both their companies and the global economy will grow in the coming year.  

The survey was conducted in November 2021 and consists of a total of 471 CEO respondents across a range of industries, with 162 respondents from the Americas, 152 from EMEA, and 157 from APAC.
