CTPartners Executive Search Inc. (AMEX: CTP), the performance-driven executive search firm, today released its 17th annual list of hot executive jobs.

CTPartners CEO Brian Sullivan said, “To an unprecedented extent, CEOs are dancing in the dark, heading into an election year in a sputtering global economy, yet required to set goals and be accountable. The leaders who can find the right balance between caution and confidence aren’t easy to find, but they do exist and boards are on the hunt for them.”
