What is Business Roundtable

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.

More Than Leaders. Leadership.

Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.

About BRT

Business Roundtable CEOs are focused on policies that strengthen businesses and support economic growth. Those opportunities are sometimes outside of the Roundtable’s permanent policy committees, but are just as important for the ongoing success and competitiveness of our country. Select committees will be formed to respond to and advocate for issues of the day that impact the economy.
