Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.
Business Roundtable’s CEO members lead U.S. companies with $7.2 trillion in annual revenues and nearly 16 million employees. BRT member companies comprise more than a quarter of the total value of the U.S. stock market and invest $190 billion annually in research and development – equal to 70 percent of U.S. private R&D spending. Our companies pay more than $230 billion in dividends to shareholders and generate more than $470 billion in sales for small and medium-sized businesses annually. BRT companies give more than $3 billion a year in combined charitable contributions.
Established in 1972, Business Roundtable applies the expertise and experience of its CEO members to the major issues facing the nation. Through research and advocacy, Business Roundtable promotes policies to improve U.S. competitiveness, strengthen the economy, and spur job creation.
