C.E.O. of the Year

Staff Writer
Columbus CEO

For the second year, Columbus C.E.O. and Capital University partnered to learn more about the Central Ohio business climate, how the economy is affecting local organizations and what top-ranking executives think of the region as a place to do business.

The Capital University School of Management and Leadership mailed the 2012 Central Ohio CEO Survey to more than 4,000 C-level and other top officers in businesses and nonprofit organizations, asking their opinions in five business climate categories. We also asked them to nominate their peers for CEO of the Year honors. Our four winners were honored Nov. 1 at an invitation-only reception at the Ohio Statehouse, where survey result highlights also were debuted.
