Growing number of major CEOs brace for possible 2023 recession

Arkansas Rep. French Hill and the Fraternal Order of Police’s Joe Gamaldi weigh in on why inflation and crime continue to be major issues in America on ‘The Evening Edit.’

The new year has shepherded in new CEOs at some major companies in a variety of industries, including retail, shipping and food.

The new bosses come after some U.S. and non-U.S.-based companies revealed in 2022 that there would be leadership changes in 2023.

In the U.S., the departures of over 1,100 CEOs were announced between January and November 2022, a Dec. 14 report from Challenger, Gray & Christmas found. That, according to the outplacement firm, marked the "lowest January-to-November total" in five years.

Here are some firms that have had new CEOs take over since the start of the new year.
