2012 Executive Hot Jobs Report From CTPartners: Shifts, Gaps And X-Factors In Financial Services, Healthcare, Retail, Media And Boards; And Global-Mobile-Social Everything

Stocks in this article: CTP

CTPartners Executive Search Inc. (AMEX: CTP), the performance-driven executive search firm, today released its 17th annual list of hot executive jobs. Despite uncertainty caused by the Eurozone debt crisis and a slow-growth U.S. economy, the 2011 report finds executive hiring to be strong in key sectors.

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.”

The CTPartners report includes 39 jobs that will be in high demand during 2012. Following are brief excerpts from the full report that is available at


In 2010, venture investments in U.S. companies totaled $27.6 billion; the first half of 2011 saw $14.3 billion – on track to match 2010 with predictions that Silicon Valley is back and quality startups abound. The problem: two-thirds of IPOs launched in 2011 in the U.S. are trading below their issue price (Dealogic).

Three hot jobs in the venture capital sector: CEO, portfolio company, especially executives with consumer/Internet experience; VP, Consumer Internet; VP, Digital Media


In 2011, CTPartners identified a major shift in Human Resources leading to a radically revamped role for HR organizations in the next ten years. Boards want HR executives capable of being strategic partners.

Three jobs on the rise: Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO); VP, Talent Development; VP, HR, especially strategy-focused executives


The global mobile applications market is projected to reach $58 billion by 2014 from $15 billion in 2011 (Gartner). Social media is expected to reach $10.3 billion in 2011;by 2015 revenues could hit $29 billion (Gartner). In addition, the global cloud computer market is hot…and led by the iPad, the ubiquitous tablet eclipsed PC sales in 2011, on the way to $35 billion in sales by 2012 (J.P. Morgan Analyst group).
