Portrait of the CEO Class of 2012 (Infographic)

Here is a demographic breakdown of CEOs hired in 2012, from Booz & Company’s 2012 Chief Executive Study. Who are these leaders, according to the report? “For the most part, they are familiar faces: Companies promoted insiders (people already at the company) 71 percent of the time—and a quarter of all new leaders had worked at the same company for their whole career; 81 percent of new CEOs were from the same country where the company’s headquarters was located; and 95 percent were men.”
