The current C-suite is clearly grounded in the past and present, with surprisingly few (28%) CEOs indicating that their executive teams represent the perspectives of future generations (Figure 16). The fact that investors (48%) have assumed that the current C-suite represents a much more future-/forward-leaning perspective is a missed expectation that companies need to address.
