In KPMG LLP’s latest CEO 2018 Outlook survey, the chief executive officers of U.S.-based consumer and retail companies said mergers and acquisitions, as well as third-party strategic deals, will drive growth over the next three years. Moreover, 83 percent of the U.S. ceo’s polled said they are “very confident” about the growth prospects of their companies — which compares to 54 percent of European ceo’s.
The bullish outlook by U.S. ceo’s coincides with efforts to “onboard new digital technologies” and step up efforts to improve the overall consumer experience, KPMG said in the report.
